Talk: Mie-resonant metaphotonics and metasurfaces

11. April 2022

Talk by Yuri Kivshar Nonlinear Physics Center, Research School of Physics, Australian National University, Australia


Future technologies underpinning high-performance optical communications, ultrafast computations, and compact biosensing will rely on densely packed reconfigurable optical circuitry based on nanophotonics. For many years, plasmonics was considered as the only available platform for subwavelength optics and nanophotonics, but the recently emerged field of Mie resonant metaphotonics (or Mie-tronics) provides practical alternatives for nanoscale optics by employing resonances in high-index dielectric nanoparticles and metasurfaces. In this talk I aim to introduce this recently emerged new field and discuss the physics of dielectric Mie-resonant metamaterials for efficient spatial and temporal control of light by employing multipolar resonances and bound states in the continuum to achieve high values of the Q factor, with applications of these concepts to nonlinear photonics, nanolasers, and sensing.

When: Monday (11.4.2022) at 11.00h at the ZAQuant seminar room (Allmandring 13).
