Special Issue Information
The advancement of modern electromagnetic technologies relies on the development of original theoretical approaches and new artificial materials. Artificially structured composites, known as metamaterials, exhibit novel properties that do not exist in natural materials, broadening human abilities in manipulating electromagnetic waves. Metamaterials provide a unique pathway to generate, guide, modulate, and detect electromagnetic waves by having structural features that are significantly smaller than the operation wavelength. The development of metamaterials enables intriguing applications ranging from wavefront manipulation, imaging at subwavelength resolution, invisibility cloaks, new concept antennas, data processing, and highly flexible sensing and modulation, which have been receiving significant attention among both the scientific and engineering communities.
The proposed Special Issue aims to offer a collection of the recent developments in electromagnetic metamaterials, metasurfaces, and surface plasmonics and explore their potential usefulness in various aspects, both experimentally and theoretically. We hope this Special Issue could stimulate continuing efforts on the understanding of electromagnetic metamaterials and exploring their applications. Tremendous efforts are still ongoing in this fascinating area. We expect that more and more new real applications of metamaterials and meta-devices will become a reality in the near future.
Original research articles and reviews are welcome for submission in this Special Issue. Research areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Novel designs for metamaterials/metasurfaces;
- Microphotonics, nanophotonics, plasmonics, and novel optical devices;
- Optical imaging and sensing;
- Plasmon-enhanced light–matter interaction at the nanoscale;
- Graphene metamaterials and devices;
- Metamaterials/metasurfaces for antennas and RF devices.
