Motivation Major breakthroughs are often materials related Stone Age, Iron Age, Si Age,.metamaterials Is it possible to engineer new materials with useful optical properties People realized the utility of naturally occurring materials Scientists are now able to engineer new functional nanostructured materials Yes ! What are the smallest possible devices with optical functionality ? Wonderful things happen when structural dimensions are light and much less This course talks about what these things areand why they happen Scientists have gone from big lenses, to optical fibers, to photonic crystals, to Does the diffraction set a fundamental limit ?...
