Light-matter interactions can be highly controlled via nanostructured thin films on the surface of objects. Indeed, a single-layer of designed and engineered subwavelength nanostructures, so-called metasurfaces, can resonantly couple to the incident light and manipulate the light’s behavior, in demand. Metasurfaces can reproduce the functions of bulk optics, and on occasions, can offer new functionalities that are not possible with conventional diffractive optics.
In this webinar hosted by the Thin Films Technical Group, Mohsen Rahmani, a UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellow, from Nottingham Trent University will review his journey in employing metallic to dielectric and semiconductor metasurfaces to control the light intensity, frequency and propagation direction. In addition, Rahmani will discuss how metasurfaces can lead to several exciting applications, including night vision, flat optics and ultra-sensitive biochemical sensing.
