Flexible Optical Metasurfaces Promise “Smart” Contact Lenses – IEEE Spectrum

The name of the game in optical metasurfaces is shortening the wavelengths of light. This yields devices that can manipulate light for information processing and also reduce the bulk of the devices based on traditional optics.

Metasurfaces have been pretty good at offering small, flat features, but the integrated metallic resonators they use to filter light according to specified frequencies have lacked efficiency. It was thought that dielectric resonators were an attractive alternative, but they present another problem: though fairly efficient, their frequency-filtering is hard to fine-tune.
