EasyChair Preprint no. 11213

7 pagesDate: November 1, 2023


Metamaterials and metasurfaces have emerged as groundbreaking technologies that are revolutionizing the control of electromagnetic waves at the nanoscale. This paper explores the fundamental principles, design, and diverse applications of these innovative materials, showcasing their potential to transform fields such as optics, telecommunications, and beyond. Metamaterials, engineered structures with properties not found in nature, offer unprecedented control over the behavior of electromagnetic waves. By manipulating the geometry and arrangement of subwavelength structures, these materials can exhibit exotic properties, including negative refractive indices and near-perfect absorbers. We delve into the physics behind these properties, emphasizing the possibilities they create for steering and shaping light, microwave, and other electromagnetic waves. The impact of metamaterials and metasurfaces transcends the realm of optics. Their influence extends to telecommunications, where compact, high-performance antennas and filters are being developed, and to stealth technology, where invisibility cloaking and radar-absorbing materials are under exploration. Moreover, these technologies are making waves in energy harvesting, sensing, and imaging.As these technologies continue to advance, they promise to unlock new possibilities across various fields, ushering in a wave of innovation and redefining our capabilities to manipulate light and electromagnetic radiation.
