NEWSMarch, 2014 - The book Optical Metamaterials: Fundamentals and Applications by W. Cai and V. Shalaev receives 2014 Joseph W. Goodman Book Writing Award recognizing "a recent and outstanding book in the field of optics and photonics that has contributed significantly to research, teaching, or the optics and photonics industry". This biennial award is co-sponsored by SPIE (see pages: #1, #2) and OSA.
The developed metallic lenses included polarization-selective nanoslit lenses which work similarly to conventional convex or concave lenses, depending on (linear) polarization of the incident light; intensity-tunable nanoslit lenses with liquid crystals; and sub-wavelength focusing lenses with hyperbolic metamaterials. All these lenses are thin and planar and, thus, are suitable for the conventional planar fabrication and integration technologies. Learn more ...
