Meta-Optics with Mie Resonances

Yuri Kivshar and Andrey Miroshnichenko

Optical magnetic responses and subwavelength localization of light, driven by Mie resonances in high-index nanoparticles, could spur new, breakthrough applications for nanoantennas, nanolasers, highly efficient metasurfaces and ultrafast meta­devices. Continue Reading
