Plasmonic metamaterials: From microscopes to invisibility cloaks


A new class of artificial materials called metamaterials — which derive their properties from carefully engineered, nanostructured building blocks rather than from their chemical composition — may one day be used to create ultrapowerful microscopes, advanced sensors, improved solar cells, computers that use light instead of electronic signals to process information, and even an invisibility cloak.
