Table of Contents

  1. Dielectric metamaterials (MMs) versus photonic crystals– common and different features
    2. Negative refraction and resonance effects in dielectric MMs and photonic crystals
    3. Transforming the dispersion diagrams of dielectric arrays at varying the dielectric permittivity
    4. Implementing transformation media from dielectric MMs and photonic crystals
    5. Interference phenomena and directional scattering from dielectric particles in photonic arrays


Dielectric Metamaterials and Metasurfaces in Transformation Optics and Photonics addresses the complexity of electromagnetic responses from arrays of dielectric resonators, which are often omitted from consideration when using simplified metamaterials concepts. The book's authors present a thorough consideration of dielectric resonances in different environments which is needed to design optical and photonic devices. Dielectric metamaterials and photonic crystals are compared, with their effects analyzed. Design approaches and examples of designs for invisibility cloaks based on artificial media are also included. Current challenge of incorporating artificial materials into transformation optics-based and photonics devices are also covered.

Key Features

  • Presents advanced concepts of utilizing artificial materials for optical and photonic device applications
  • Includes design approaches of materials for transformation optics, cloaking, applications and examples of these designs
  • Compares photonic crystals and metamaterials, their effects, properties and characteristics
