Metamaterial flat lens works at UV wavelengths

By Jim Destefani / May 28, 2013

Schematic of UV metamaterial flat lens showing alternating nanolayers of silver (green) and titanium dioxide (blue). Illuminated with UV light, a sample object placed on the slab is projected as a 3D image in free space on the other side of the slab.
