Andrei Faraon - "Flat Metasurface Optics"

For hundreds of years, most optical elements like lenses and polarizers have been fabricated using carefully polished pieces of glass or crystals, and assembled in optical systems such as cameras and microscopes.

In this talk, Faraon will discuss how nano-technology enables new ways to make optical components using fabrication processes already developed in the semiconductor industry. These nano-patterned structures, named optical metasurfaces, allow for extreme miniaturization of optical systems with applications in consumer electronics and medical devices.

Andrei Faraon is Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science at Caltech, in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.

This is a free event; no tickets or reservations are required.

Reserved section tickets are available to members of the Friends of Beckman Auditorium and the Caltech Associates.
