Artificial Optical Materials for Molding the Flow of Light

Description :  

The objective of the researchers of this project is to develop novel broadband, radiation-free index photon traps (CIPTs) and microscopic light concentrators (MLCs) for the purpose of determining electromagnetic wave interaction properties in artificial optical materials, or EMMs. This goal may be accomplished through: testing of electromagnetic phenomena in proposed EMM designs and DOMs for photon trapping, testing of a FDTD code and two optical attractors, and the validation of a ``bottom-up`` method for electrodeposition of multilayered nanopilar arrays (MLNA). These proposed steps may facilitate the exploitation of conformal coordinate transformations, conceivably rendering objects invisible at microscale and macroscale length scales.
