Stopped Light in Metamaterials

We present an overview of recent advances in the field of slow- and stopped-light in metamaterial and plasmonic waveguides. We elucidate the mechanisms by which these configurations can enable complete stopping of light and we show how, by using gain, dissipative losses can be overcome in the slow- and stopped-light regimes.
