Photonic Metamaterials (OP)

This group provides a forum for those working on problems related to fundamental and applied aspects of waves in random and periodically nanostructured materials as well as plasmonics. Random media encompasses transmission through, scattering from and imaging in turbulent and static disordered media as well as the statistical nature of wave propagation and its connection to photon diffusion and localization. Partial coherence; coherent backscattering, temporal, spectral and spatial correlation within the speckle pattern; and random lasing are important topics in this area. The focus on periodic media is exciting because such nano-fabricated structures enable photonic engineering of metamaterials with novel properties. Examples include left-handed materials, negative index materials and photonic and plasmonic bandgap materials. These structured materials allow the control of spontaneous emission and lasing. Other areas of interest include plasmonic nanomaterials, transmission through voids in metallic surfaces and scattering from metal dielectric surfaces. Optical enhancements in metallic and dielectric systems and their applications to photon guiding and sensing are also important.

Subwavelength Antenna Structures for Strong-Field THz Experiments in Condensed-Matter Systems

When: 10 November 2021, 14:00 EST (UTC - 05:00)

Join the Photonic Metamaterials Technical Group for this webinar featuring Christoph Lange, Technical University of Dortmund, discussing the design, implementation and applications of broadband metal antenna resonator structures, which confine short THz and mid-infrared electromagnetic field transients to strongly subwavelength mode volumes, boosting the interaction of light with elementary electronic excitations of solid-state structures by orders of magnitude.
