The physics and technology of metadevices and metasystems
The physics and technology of metadevices and metasystems
Photonic metamaterials research has migrated in recent years from the study of almost exclusively plasmonic metal nanostructures to embrace a variety of advanced material platforms, including dielectrics, semiconductors, superconductors, phase-change media, and topological insulators. Optically- and electronically-actuated reconfigurable photonic metasurfaces based on such materials offer a range of low-loss, nonlinear, tuneable and switchable optical functionalities in ultra-compact form-factor – for example, engaging nano(opto)mechanical or phase-change response mechanisms to serve signal modulation, spectral/polarization selection or dispersion manipulation applications. In this talk I will review recent developments in the field, ranging from the demonstration of compositionally-tuneable plasmonic properties in chalcogenides to the integration of active all-dielectric and plasmonic metamaterials with optical fibre waveguides.

Abstract

Photonic metamaterials research has migrated in recent years from the study of almost exclusively plasmonic metal nanostructures to embrace a variety of advanced material platforms, including dielectrics, semiconductors, superconductors, phase-change media, and topological insulators. Optically- and electronically-actuated reconfigurable photonic metasurfaces based on such materials offer a range of low-loss, nonlinear, tuneable and switchable optical functionalities in ultra-compact form-factor – for example, engaging nano(opto)mechanical or phase-change response mechanisms to serve signal modulation, spectral/polarization selection or dispersion manipulation applications. In this talk I will review recent developments in the field, ranging from the demonstration of compositionally-tuneable plasmonic properties in chalcogenides to the integration of active all-dielectric and plasmonic metamaterials with optical fibre waveguides.
