Metasurface-Based Devices

Advanced Devices Special Issue Image: Colored lines over a dark background

The Science Partner Journal Advanced Devices & Instrumentation presents its first special issue, Metasurface-Based Devices.


Metasurfaces have abilities to manipulate the amplitude, phase, and polarization of electromagnetic waves with subwavelength spatial resolution. Distinct from conventional bulk optical components, metasurface-based devices have the advantage of being ultrathin, lightweight, and compact, as well as the functionality for multiplexing. These devices hold promise for many applications, such as meta-lenses, holography, color printing, spatial light modulation, polarization control and conversion, communication, information processing, tailored light emission, nonlinear frequency conversion, and quantum physics.

In this special issue, experts from the research front line will share recent progress in metasurface design, optimization, and novel prototype devices. Furthermore, experts will discuss the challenges that metasurfaces present for scalable manufacturing and end-user applications.
