March 29, 2024 - Orlando, FL Invited colloquium at CREOL April 12, 2024 - Notre Dame, IN Invited colloquium at U Notre Dame May 20-23, 2024 - Pittsburgh, PA Invited talk at SIAM Conference on Material Science May 20-25, 2024 - Auburn, AL Invited talk at NSF-CMBS conference
Metamaterial-Enhanced Technology We have been exploring several ways in which metamaterials can advance real-life technology, from highly efficient opto- electronics (see our MURI effort) to energy harvesting, sensing, radio-wave and optical antennas and metasurfaces.
Cloaking and Invisibility One of the most exciting applications of metamaterials: our group has pioneered the use of plasmonic and mantle cloaks for drastic scattering suppression of radio-waves, infrared, matter, sound and light waves.
Non-Reciprocity and Topology Our group has been exploring several exciting concepts to exploit symmetry- breaking to enable extreme wave phenomena (see our MURI and STC efforts), including non-reciprocity and topological metamaterials for light and sound.
Multi-Physics Metamaterials We have been exploring multi-physics platforms to extend the playground of opportunities enabled by metamaterials for technology, including opto-mechanical phenomena, thermal effects, plasmonics and polaritonics.
