Metallic metamaterials and plasmonics









Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ



Organised by Professor Bill Barnes, Professor Nader Engheta, Dr Alastair Hibbins and Professor Roy Sambles FRS

Our ability to control and harness light is undergoing a revolution, one that exploits the special properties of metals and our ability to structure them on a sub-wavelength scale.These plasmonic and metallic metamaterials provide challenges for physicists and engineers that demand a multi-disciplinary approach. This meeting brings together scientists from different sub-disciplines to exchange knowledge and forge new ideas.

Audio recordings are now available to download below.

The proceedings of this meeting are scheduled to be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
