A review of dielectric optical metasurfaces for wavefront control
Abstract During the past few years, metasurfaces have been used to demonstrate optical elements and systems with capabilities that surpass those of conventional diffractive optics. Here, we review

Diffraction limited optics for single atom manipulation
We present an optical system designed to capture and observe a single neutral atom in an optical dipole trap, created by focusing a laser beam using a large-numerical-aperture (NA= 0.5) aspheric

A dielectric metasurface optical chip for the generation of cold atoms
A novel scheme that uses a metasurface optical chip to replace the conventional bulky optical elements used to produce a cold atomic ensemble with a single incident laser beam, which is split by the metAsurface into multiple beams of the desired polarization states is reported on.
Meta-Lens Doublet in the Visible Region.
A compact meta-lens doublet is demonstrated by patterning two metasurfaces on both sides of a substrate that enables diffraction-limited monochromatic imaging along the focal plane at a wavelength of 532 nm.
Magneto-optical trapping using planar optics
Laser-cooled atoms are a key technology for many calibration-free measurement platforms—including clocks, gyroscopes, and gravimeters—and are a promising system for quantum networking and quantum
Low-loss metasurface optics down to the deep ultraviolet region
High-performance metasurface optical components that operate at ultraviolet wavelengths, including wavelengths down to the record-short deep ultraviolet range, and perform representative wavefront shaping functions, namely, high-numerical-aperture lensing, accelerating beam generation, and hologram projection are demonstrated.
Broadband Achromatic Metasurface-Refractive Optics.
The concept of hybrid metasurface-refractive optics combines the advantages of both technologies in terms of size, scalability, complexity, and functionality and greatly increases the bandwidth of a state-of-the-art immersion objective.
Numerical Optimization Methods for Metasurfaces
The concepts in numerical inverse designs discussed herein will push this exciting field toward realistic and practical applications, ranging from laser wavefront engineering to innovative facial recognition and motion detection devices, including augmented reality retro-reflectors and related complex light field engineering.
