Physics and applications of advanced meta surfaces

Project Details

Description

In this project we want to formulate answers to some pressing research questions that currently exist around the development of meta-surfaces. We do this through three different but intrinsically connected objectives. First we study the physics of complex meta-surfaces where we replace the meta-atoms with meta-molecules. Then we develop an analytical formalism with which meta-surfaces can be designed for guiding surface waves. Finally, we broaden the functionalities of meta-surfaces by taking into account time-dependent material properties. The combination of these three objectives will provide us with fundamental insights from the improve the physical functioning of meta-surfaces and offer new perspectives for their applicability in the coming generation of photonic components.
