Plenary Session II
08:30 Plenary talk : From Achromatic Flat Optics to Disordered Metasurfaces with Functional Connectivity
Harvard University (USA) Recent advances by my group in metasurface physics and applications are reported, which demonstrate two important new functionalities: the so far elusive achromatic behavior of metasurfaces and the design and realization of disordered holey metallic metasurfaces with deep subwavelength features, which show reproducible and tunable optical properties by controlling the connectivity of the metasurface.
09:10 Plenary talk : Metaplatforms
University of Pennsylvania (USA) Over the past several years, the field of metamaterials has witnessed various stages of development and growth. Started with tailoring material parameters to achieve wave manipulation at will, it has now become a broader scientific and technological endeavor, and is encompassing a new way of thinking and methodology. We now investigate platforms, paradigms, systems and subsystems for more complex wave-matter interaction and functional devices.
