Research Programs  The Engheta group
RESEARCH PROGRAMS IN THE ENGHETA GROUP Our group is focused on the physics and engineering of fields and waves and the various features and characteristics of wave-matter interaction. Under this umbrella of research interest, there are several research foci and themes that we explore extensively.  Some of these themes include: Metamaterials, Metasurfaces, and Plasmonics
Metamaterials, as specially designed structures, provide useful platforms to manipulate and sculpt waves and fields for achieving unprecedented functionalities. Quantum Metaphotonics and Nanoscale Optics Exploring how metastructures can affect the light- matter interaction at the nanoscale provides useful roadmaps about how some of the quantum features of light can be engineered by these special platforms. ENZ, MNZ, and EMNZ Structures Extreme-parameter composites such as epsilon-near-zero (ENZ), mu-near-zero (MNZ), and epsilon-and-mu-
near-zero (EMNZ) structures, offer “extreme” scenarios in electrodynamics of material media. Modularized Nanophotonics, Optical Metatronics and Informatic Metastructures Optical metatronics, as the nanoscale optical circuit paradigm with modularized (“lumped”) optical circuit elements, brings the notion of electronic circuitry into the field of nanophotonics. This allows modularization of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale and provides the methodologies and approaches to envision “informatic metastructures” that “can do math with light”- with the goal of nanoscale information processing
