Shapeshifting Metasurfaces for Chemically Selective Augmented Reality

Project description

Improving optical lens performance using metasurfaces

Metasurfaces are artificial sheet materials that are often used to manipulate light scattering, colour, phase or intensity. Their properties can be adapted to a diverse set of applications. The EU-funded METAmorphoses project plans to develop the first shapeshifting optical metasurface that will change its functionality on demand and will adapt to changing external conditions. The metasurface may work as a chemically selective lens that allows the transmission of only the spectral fingerprint of a specific molecule in the mid-infrared wavelength range. The same metasurface can later be turned into an adaptive lens for focussing light on skin.
