Chiral Metamaterials for THz Polarisation Control

Project description

High-performance metamaterials interacting with terahertz waves

A metamaterial is an artificial composite structure engineered to have properties not found in naturally occurring materials. Chiral metamaterials are designed to have unnatural chiral parameters. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the CHARTIST project aims to lay the theoretical basis for the development of a proof-of-concept chiral metamaterial, enhanced by graphene and carbon nanotubes, that interacts at terahertz frequencies. The project will rely on solid theoretical background on analytical and numerical modelling of the terahertz radiation interactions with chiral metamaterials and metasurfaces. New techniques for controlling helicity in the terahertz range will be studied. Furthermore, innovative techniques will be used to fabricate chiral metamaterials and metasurfaces, including femtosecond laser micromachining and electron-beam lithography.
