Abstract

Electromagnetic metamaterials are designer materials made from 'artificial atoms' which provide unprecedented control over light matter interactions. Metamaterials are fashioned to yield a specific response to the electric and magnetic components of light and have realized a multitude of exotic properties difficult to achieve with natural materials. Having matured over the last decade and a half, researchers now look toward realizing applications of metamaterials. The ability to dynamically control novel responses exhibited by electromagnetic metamaterials would bolster this quest thus ushering in the next revolution in materials.
