This proposed Fellowship is aimed at developing active control of optical properties that may not be found in nature by synergising the “graphene metamaterials” technology invented at the applicant’s institute in Korea and the “novel design of metamaterials with unnatural properties” developed by the host university through knowledge sharing and technology transfer by the incoming top-class researcher, Dr. Teun-Teun Kim. The proposed hybrid metamaterial system features very thin, free-standing and flexible platform and is capable of full electrical control, which will not only control novel optical properties, but also overcome most of the limitations of current semiconductor-based metamaterials. This fellowship will produce significant technical, economic and social benefits, thus contributing to European excellence and competitiveness in both metamaterials and graphene technology.
