Nonlinear metamaterials and transformation optics

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    Metamaterials are man-made structures with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found in natural materials. They offer unique capabilities for controlling electromagnetic radiation for frequencies ranging from microwaves to optics. This project aims to study, both theoretically and experimentally, novel fundamental phenomena of nonlinear metamaterials. It will introduce double-nonlinear metamaterials, with a unique type of nonlinear response; study nonlinear transformation optics, with unprecedented capabilities for design of optical devices; study liquid-crystal-based metamaterials, and explore metamaterials for terahertz applications. These developments will lead to nonlinear metamaterial-based devices in the near future.
