Radiation-Suppressed plasmonic open resonators designed by nonmagnetic transformation optics

TLDR
This work proposes a design method of forming a polygonal surface-plasmonic resonator in fully open structures by applying the nonmagnetic affine transformation optics strategy, which can be implemented with dielectric materials available in nature.

Flux Exclusion Superconducting Quantum Metamaterial: Towards Quantum-level Switching

TLDR
A new quantum superconducting metamaterial is introduced which exploits the magnetic flux quantization for switching and was manufactured from a high-temperature superconductor and characterized in the low intensity regime, providing the first observation of the quantum phenomenon of flux exclusion affecting the far-field electromagnetic properties of the meetamaterial.

From metamaterials to metadevices.

TLDR
This Review summarizes research on photonic, terahertz and microwave electromagnetic metamaterials and metadevices with functionalities attained through the exploitation of phase-change media, semiconductors, graphene, carbon nanotubes and liquid crystals.

Free-electron-driven nanoscale light sources: from Hertzian antennas to metamaterials

This thesis reports on the development of new types of nanoscale optical light sources driven by free-electrons and on the investigation of the underpinning physical phenomena. It is focused on three
