Metamaterials for novel applications


Novel artificial materials enable the realization of innovative electromagnetic (EM) properties unattainable in naturally existing materials. These materials, characterized here as metamaterials (MMs), have been in the foreground of scientific interest in the last ten years or so. Clearly, the field of MMs can develop mould-breaking technologies for a plethora of applications, where control over light (or more generally electromagnetic radiation) is a prominent ingredient.

In this talk the use of metamaterials in novel applications is going to be presented (based on both theoretical and experimental data), and is divided into two basic sections: Chiral and bi-anisotropic metamaterials (a), which can find application in Optics as perfect lenses, polarizers etc., and can be utilized for quantitative analysis in sensing applications, and Electromagnetic wave perfect absorbers (b), which can be applied in optics and photovoltaics, sensing or electromagnetic shielding applications.
