Marie Freebody, Contributing Editor, [email protected]

Invisibility cloaks, perfect imaging, enhanced photovoltaic light collection, all-optical memories and biosensing are just some of the intriguing applications of metamaterials currently grabbing headlines in scientific journals. The field of metamaterials is barely 10 years old. First conceived in 2000 by Sir John Pendry at Imperial College London, metamaterials relied in the early days on advances in nanotechnology to build tiny structures such as metallic rings or wires smaller than the wavelength of light. These nanostructures modify the electromagnetic properties of the metamaterial,...Read full article
