Topical Review Sessions on Flat Optics


Federico Capasso, Harvard University, USA

Flat Optics I: Physics of metasurfaces and their applications

Metasurfaces enable an unprecedented platform to explore light-matter interaction. This session covers aspects of interesting fundamental topics in metasurfaces, including but not limited to zero index materials, dispersion engineering, ultrafast dynamics, nonreciprocity, nonlinearity and quantum metasurfaces.


Invited Speakers

Vladimir M. Shalaev, Purdue University, USA

Metasurfaces for Synchrotron radiation generation and ultrafast beam steering

Yuri Kivshar, Australian National University, Australia

Nonlinear and topological dielectric metasurfaces

Mikhail Belkin, University of Texas at Austin, USA

Nonlinear metasurfaces for power limiting


Flat Optics II: Metasurface optical components

Metasurfaces enable the redesign of optical components into thin, planar and multifunctional elements, promising a major reduction in footprint and system complexity as well as the introduction of new optical functions. This session will focus on metasurface-based optical devices and systems for a wide range of applications and will include high-performance components designed by inverse methods.


Invited Speakers

Wei Ting Chen, Harvard University, USA

Dispersion-engineered and Polarization-insensitive Metasurfaces for Broadband Achromatic Optics

Jonathan Fan, Stanford University, USA

AI-assisted Design of Topologically Complex Metasurfaces

Byoungho Lee, Seoul National University, USA

Metasurface Devices for AR/VR
