- Optical metamaterials.
- Alternative materials (e.g., semi-metals, topological insulators, perovskites).
- Plasmonic, polaritonic, epsilon-near-zero, high refractive index.
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
This group will be responsible for characterization of the optical/electromagnetic properties of the materials developed in the other groups at the micron and nanoscales. The group will provide such characterization as chemical properties/refractive index mapping compared with the electromagnetic field distribution. It will verify novel design concepts for materials, structures and devices in regard to their material properties and function as optical devices – in cooperation with the Light-matter interaction theory group. This group will use novel advanced techniques of materials characterization including systems working beyond the light diffraction limit.
