About this Research Topic
The metasurface is an artificial layered material with a subwavelength thickness. The metasurface can realize flexible and effective control of electromagnetic wave polarization, amplitude, phase, polarization mode, propagation mode, and other characteristics. Moreover, the metasurface can realize the functions of beam deflection, superlens, super holography, vortex light generation, encoding, stealth, phantom, and many others by controlling the phase of electromagnetic waves.
This Research Topic calls for manuscript submissions discussing theory, experimental results as well as applications covering visible and microwave range. The purpose of this Research Topic is to highlight the recent progress and trends in advanced photonic metasurfaces. The topic generally encompasses controlling flow of light in optical metasurface with properties engineered at the subwavelength scale. The novel properties found in these advance photonic metasurfaces, coupled with the ability to control these properties with unprecedented precision through advanced fabrication techniques, have opened fundamentally new prospects for manipulating light. This Research Topic focuses on the design, fabrication, and applications of photonic metasurface devices.
