Paper Abstract

Progress in photonics and indeed in many areas of science and technology has in many cases been closely linked to development in materials. This development has in some cases been initiated by theoretical considerations and requirements formulation, in other cases novel materials have opened up unexpected applications. Examples of the former are given, where materials meeting certain requirements would lead to quantum leaps in device performance.
