Thursday, May 10, 2018 11:00am - 12:00pm

Jacob B. Khurgin, Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, will present a talk: "Epsilon Near Zero Materials - Photonics on Steroids?". Abstract: We examine the characteristics of optical materials with near zero real part of permittivity (ENZ), and compare them with other materials relying on resonance where Re(ε)~0 (e.g. plasmonics) or Re(1/ε)~0 (e.g. slow light, microresonators, e.t.c.). Despite being seemingly very diverse phenomena all of the resonant effects share a key common characteristics – slow group velocity.
