Speakers: Professor Roy Sambles

Question: what do graceful flickering vividly iridescent tropical butterflies have in common with dull-grey ponderous battleships? Answer: structured materials giving a rather special electromagnetic response. Their
structured surfaces, metasurfaces for metals, produce amazing optical effects. For example, they can produce perfect mirrors, negative refractive indices and selective absorption.
