This course explains basic principles and applications of meta-lenses and meta-devices. A primary goal of the course is to explain the mechanism of the nanostructures of various meta-lenses and meta-devices. Anyone who wants to answer questions such as, "What is a meta-lens?" or "What are the advantages of using meta-lenses vs. conventional optical lenses?" will benefit from taking this course.
Learning Outcomes
  • explain the difference between generalized Snell’s Law and traditional Snell’s Law.
  • describe the fundamental mechanism of meta-surface.
  • explain the role of nano antenna of meta-surface.
  • describe the basic working mechanism of various meta-lenses.
  • list the advantages and differences between the meta-lens and traditional optical lens.
Scientists, engineers, technicians, or managers who wish to learn more about meta-lenses and meta-devices. Undergraduate training in engineering or science is assumed.
