May 11-15, 2015 - Lille, France Invitedtalk at E-MRS Spring Meeting May 31- June 5, 2015 - Tel Aviv, Israel Invitedtalk at SPP7 June 9-11, 2015 - Ottawa, Canada Invitedtalk at Photonics North 2015 July 19-25, 2015 - Vancouver, Canada Two invited talks at IEEE AP-S
Metasurfaces and Metamaterials We have introduced the concept of nonperiodic metamaterials and metasurfaces with controlled variations along an axis of choice, providing new degrees of freedom for light manipulation at the nanoscale.
Cloaking and Invisibility One of the most exciting applications of metamaterials: our group has pioneered the use of plasmonic and mantle cloaks for drastic scattering suppression of radio-waves, infrared, matter, sound and light waves.
Introducing Cloaking  (TACC video)
Metamaterial Devices and Components Our group has proposed several exciting concepts to apply metamaterials and plasmonics for novel devices to manipulate, process and tailor radio-waves, THz, infrared, optical and sound signals.
Optical Nanoantennas and Nanocircuits We have put forward several innovative concepts to tailor emission, radiation, scattering, absorption and optical signal processing at the nanoscale, inspired to the established concepts of radio- frequency antennas and circuits.
