Liquid crystals for functional metamaterial devices

Lead Research Organisation: University of Southampton
Department Name: School of Physics and Astronomy


Metamaterials are nano-patterned artificial media that can exhibit properties beyond those seen in natural materials. Creating tunable and switchable metamaterials is of great interest for many practical applications. Utilising liquid crystals, with their attractive optical properties and easily controllable nature, is an exciting method to accomplish this.
