Symposium EQ10—Advances in Metasurfaces, Metamaterials and Plasmonics—Materials Design, Manufacturing, Applications and Industrial Aspects

Joint symposium with MRS-Singapore

Metamaterials and metasurfaces are artificial composite materials (3D) and surfaces (2D) that through structural design enable exotic properties not easily obtainable or unavailable in nature. Metamaterials have achieved remarkable progress in the optical region by using 2D and 3D nanostructures, and the concept has been rapidly expanded to other fields including mechanics, acoustics, and thermodynamics. Moreover, currently we are witnessing the advances in nanoscale optics, photonics and materials with metasurfaces-driven flat optics, which is going from science to technology transition. This symposium aims at bringing together researchers with diverse backgrounds from physics, materials science, engineering, and manufacturing, to cover the fundamental principles and technological applications of metasurfaces and plasmonics, spanning from imaging/display system, bio/chemical sensing, photovoltaics, and energy harvesting devices, to quantum information processing, medical devices, communication system, and data storage.

Topics will include:

  • Metasurfaces, metamaterials, and plasmonics
  • Photonics with two-dimensional materials
  • Materials with epsilon-near-zero and hyperbolic dispersion properties
  • Active and multifunctional plasmonics, nanophotonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces
  • Time-varying and quantum metasurfaces and its applications
  • Topological photonic and parity-time symmetric materials and metasurfaces
  • Ultrafast and nonlinear effects in metamaterials and plasmonics
  • Terahertz, photovoltaic, and thermal devices and applications
  • Advanced nanophotonic design strategies including machine learning, topological optimizations, and inverse design
  • Optical computing and analog processing enabled by functional metasurfaces
  • Novel imaging technologies with metasurfaces and plasmonics
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
