Abstract:  Metamaterials are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials. We review this new emerging field and recent progress in demonstrating metamaterials in the optical range.


Biography:  Vladimir M. Shalaev, the Robert and Anne Burnett Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, specializes in nano-photonics, nano-plasmonics, and optical metamaterials. Dr. Shalaev has several awards for his research in the field of nano-photonics and metamaterials. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), Fellow of The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA). Dr. Shalaev is editor/co-editor for a number of journals and book series in the area of nanoscale optics. He authored and edited 7 books, published 20 invited book chapters, and over 250 research papers.
