Ultrathin metasurface lenses do things conventional optics can’t
08Sep

A new ultrathin, flat metamaterial lens has been developed that controls and manipulates light in ways not possible with conventional optics

Once, the only way to manipulate light was with the use of a transparent glass or plastic lens whose shape and makeup determined such things as focus, magnification, and polarity. However, to incorporate all of these properties in the one optical system required a large and complex collection of multiple lenses to achieve. Now researchers working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have created a flat silicon metamaterial lens that manages all of these thing in a microminiaure device that electromagnetically controls the properties of any light passing it… Continue Reading Ultrathin metasurface lenses do things conventional optics can’t
