The recently emerged fields of metamaterials and transformation optics promise a family of exciting applications such as invisibility, optical imaging with deeply subwavelength resolution and nanophotonics with the potential for much faster information processing. The possibility of creating optical negative-index metamaterials (NIMs) using nanostructured metal–dielectric composites has triggered intense basic and applied research over the past several years. However, the performance of all NIM… CONTINUE READING
