Bridging the terahertz gap

Bridging the terahertz gap

Optical frequency combs are widely-used, high-precision tools for measuring and detecting different frequencies — a.k.a., colors — of light. Unlike conventional lasers, which emit a …

 

Network metamaterials with functional connectivity featured on the cover of Advanced Optical Materials

Network metamaterials with functional connectivity featured on the cover of Advanced Optical Materials

In a traditional sense, optical metamaterials are formed from nanostructured “meta-atoms” with a defined unit cell. This imposes harsh fabrication constraints that hamper the ability …

 

Visible spectrometer realized with metasurfaces

Visible spectrometer realized with metasurfaces

Lab-grade spectrometers are typically expensive bench top instruments. This, to a large extent, makes them out of reach for widespread, portable application. Our group recently …

A metalens over a 60nm bandwidth in the visible

Planar lenses based on metasurfaces hold promise to revolutionize optics. However, an issue has traditionally been the so-called “chromatic aberration” inherent in metalenses. Chromatic aberration …
