"Metasurfaces" to Usher in New Optical Technologies, Purdue University Study



3/15/2013 8:24:07 AM

New optical technologies using “metasurfaces” capable of the ultra-efficient control of light are nearing commercialization, with potential applications including advanced solar cells, computers, telecommunications, sensors and microscopes. The metasurfaces could make possible “planar photonics” devices and optical switches small enough to be integrated into computer chips for information processing and telecommunications, said Alexander Kildishev, associate research professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University.
