Expertise

  • Metamaterials, Left-Handed Materials, and Transformation Optics, Invisibility, Cloaking: We study and design electromagnetic and optical metamaterials. These are engineered materials in which atoms are replaced by electric circuits or plasmonic elements as the basic constituents in the interaction with electromagnetic radiation. By proper design, we can create materials with properties that go beyond those of natural materials. A subclass of metamaterials is formed by the left-handed materials, which are materials with negative index of refraction. They are characterised by exotic electromagnetic propagation, such as backward wave propagation, negative refraction, inverse Doppler effect, and negative diffraction. We also design proof-of-principle applications based on metamaterials.
