Metasurfaces for Light Management in Semiconductor Thin Films

Deirdre O'Carroll Rutgers University, USA

In this talk, recent work on improving light trapping and light extraction in organic semiconductor thin films using plasmonic metasurfaces is presented. Numerous optical phenomena, such as absorption induced scattering, out-of-plane waveguiding and morphology-dependent surface plasmon outcoupling, are identified due to exciton-plasmon coupling between the organic semiconductor and the metasurface.


Structuring Light and Dark with Metaoptics

Federico Capasso, Harvard University, USA

Metasurfaces can generate arbitrary vector beams. I discuss devices that enable light’s spin and orbital angular momentum (OAM) to evolve, simultaneously, from one state to another along the propagation direction and polarizing elements that virtually rotate their orientation as a function of the propagation distance. Advances in high OAM lasing will be reported along with the design and realization of two-dimensional phase and polarization singularities.


4D Structured Waves

Nader Engheta, University of Pennsylvania, USA

Varying materials parameters in time, in addition to (or instead of) spatial inhomogeneities in material platforms, can provide additional degrees of freedom in structuring and sculpting waves that lead to interesting functionalities in wave-matter interaction. While the spatial and/or temporal variations of material parameters have certain analogies and similarities, they exhibit important differences. In this talk, I will present an overview of some of the ongoing research programs on this topic in my group, will discuss the salient features, and will forecast possible future directions.


Applications of metasurfaces: From multispectral imaging to optical communications and biosensing

Maiken H. Mikkelsen, Duke University, USA

In this talk, I present advances in plasmonic metasurfaces with examples of potential future applications in a wide-variety of areas from multispectral imaging to optical communications and biosensing.
