# Holographic duality in nonlinear hyperbolic metamaterials

@article{Smolyaninov2014HolographicDI, title={Holographic duality in nonlinear hyperbolic metamaterials}, author={Igor I. Smolyaninov}, journal={Journal of Optics}, year={2014}, volume={16} }

According to the holographic principle, the description of a volume of space can be thought of as encoded on its boundary. Holographic principle establishes equivalence, or duality, between theoretical description of volume physics, which involves gravity, and the gravity-free field theory, which describes physics on its surface. While generally accepted as a theoretical framework, so far there was no known experimental system which would exhibit explicit holographic duality and be amenable to…
