Compact Metadevices for Flat Optical Components

Wed, Nov 7, 2018 1:00P EST

Inverse-design is a new paradigm that enables engineers to tap into vast parameter space for designing novel photonic and optical devices, including compact metadevices. Inverse-design approaches can be used to design ultracompact on-chip and free-space optical components for a broad range of applications.

This webinar will discuss inverse-design methods for creating compact metadevices and the use of additive manufacturing for making thin optical components. Presenter Koray Aydin will describe his lab’s platform for combining inverse electromagnetic design algorithms with additive manufacturing to fabricate millimeter-wave metadevices. Aydin will further show how this platform can be applied to the design and fabrication of electromagnetic and photonic metadevices spanning microwave to optical frequencies. Although Aydin’s lab designs metadevices in the millimeter-wave region, similar devices can be designed to operate in any wavelength from visible to microwave frequencies, provided that low-loss dielectric materials can be additively fabricated with subwavelength feature sizes.
