Metasurfaces for ultrafast light structuring

Project description

Ultrafast light modulation accelerates growth at the edge of the network

Photons have long surpassed electrons as the medium of choice to send data over long distances. Manipulating their unique characteristics can enhance speed, capacity, integrity and security to meet the needs of today's increasingly interconnected world. Among the most important parameters are spin and orbital angular momentum (SOAM). The EU-funded METAFAST project is developing a pioneering approach to ultrafast light structuring based on next-generation optical metamaterials. Success could augment the current speed of SOAM modulators six-fold, opening the door to a wealth of new applications for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
