Introduction to optical metamaterial

Category: 2016 , SSCS Events

Anyone interested in Optics and Photonics or is willing to know what they are is welcomed to attend this event. During the session, you will get introduced to the concept of optical metamaterials, the theory behind it, and some of its interesting applications.

Metamaterials are basically artificially structured materials which are made from assemblies of multiple elements fashioned from composite materials such as metals or plastics.

In just a few years, the field of optical metamaterials has emerged as one of the most exciting topics in the science of light, with stunning and unexpected outcomes that have fascinated scientists and the general public alike. Its applications’ include super lenses, super-resolution devices, and negative-indexed materials. Such applications necessitate the presence of unnatural materials with properties that can fit into these applications and others.
