报告摘要:

Recent theory predicted a new class of photonic composite materials made of engineered sub wavelength entities - meta “atoms” and “molecules” which enable the unprecedented optical properties that do not exist in the nature such as optical magnetism and negative refraction. Especially, the superlens made of metamaterials breaks the fundamental diffraction limit, which may have profound impact in wide range of applications such as nano-scale imaging, nanolithography, and ultra-density data storage.

I’ll discuss a few recent experiments that demonstrated these intriguing physical properties. We created the first bulk optical metamaterials that show the negative refractions. We demonstrated the superlens and optical cloaking using carefully design of plasmonic materials dispersions. The recent discoveries on new topological symmetry such as Mobius symmetry in metamaterials reveals fundamentally new realm of physical properties that do not occur in nature materials. I will further discuss a new technology based on superlens for nano-scale lithography that may transform the next generation of nano-manufacturing, along with plasmon lasers, a coherent light at molecular scale.
