Photonic Metamaterials (OP)

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.

Time: 10:00am - 11:00am EDT, Monday 25 March 2019

Register today for this free webinar hosted by the Photonic Metamaterials Technical Group. Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf will will discuss the pioneering steps of the EM Lab to explore new concepts in metamaterials and photonic crystals that fully exploit the third dimension. Attendees will learn new techniques to sculpt electromagnetic fields and control photons, and new concepts in metamaterials and photonics crystals enabled by 3D printing. The live webinar will be recorded for future viewing on demand.
