CfM Presents at SPIE Conference

Simona Popescu, CfM graduate student, will be presenting the poster "Optical Properties of Aqueous Dispersions of Diamond Nanoparticles" at the SPIE Conference in August. She will demonstrate results of electrophoretic experiments that modify the structure of a metasurface by using diamond nanoparticles with sizes much smaller than the wavelength of light. Optical metasurfaces demonstrate outstanding capabilities of optical parameters modifications by changes in the structural architecture at the nano-scale level.

The light filtering and guiding properties of high finesse phase resonant compound gratings, Accepted to Optics Express

Synopsis:  This paper investigated general properties of phase resonances, how phase resonances are excited, how they concentrate, radiate, filter light, and how to extract energy from the phase resonances.  A new type of corrugated surface antenna using phase resonances is described.

UNCC Hosts CfM 4th Semi-Annual Meeting

The NSF I/UCRC Center for Metamaterials (CfM) held its 4th semi-annual meeting on October 10-11, 2012, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The two-day meeting consisted of current project updates, new project proposals and student poster presentations.

Optical Modeling Workshop in New York

If you’re interested in the science of Metamaterials and nano-optical systems, please join us for a two-day course that focuses on applying the HFSS software-modeling package to these two disciplines. Users will be taught in a classroom setting and have access to a workstation pre-loaded with HFSS. The main focus of this workshop is how to correctly apply HFSS FEM modeling capabilities to systems that are in the infrared and optical regime. 

CUNY Hosts the Third CfM Semi-Annual Meeting in New York


On March 21st and 22nd, the City University of New York will host the Spring 2012 CfM Semi-Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held in 230 West 41st Street in New York, and will include CfM professors and students, as well as members of the CfM Industry Advisory Board. CfM members can learn more information about the meeting by visiting the CfM Members-Only site and clicking on the link for the Spring 2012 Semi-Annual Meeting.

Test version of 2D RCWA is available for testing!
