  Zero-index Makes a Big Impact

Oct 20, 2015 -- Our work on zero-index metamaterials has been featured on the cover of this month’s issue of Nature Photonics! We designed and fabricated a nano-scale composite with a refractive index equal to zero. (All natural materials have a refractive index greater than 1). In this regime, the wavelength is infinitely long, leading to some interesting behavior. To demonstrate its performance, we measured a beam of light refracting through a prism made from this metamaterial. More
