Gennady Shvets (UT Austin)



"Science and applications of infrared metamaterials: from thermo-photovoltaics to graphene-integrated plasmonic metasurfaces"

  • Date: Monday, March 16, 2015
  • Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm
  • Location: Smalley-Curl Room, Space Science 301A
  • Wine & Cheese Reception after the talk

In this talk I will discuss novel directions in STPV that take advantage of plasmonic metamaterials. I will also discuss the prospects for turning metasurfaces into an actively-tunable platform for ultra-fast light manipulation. The rapid tunability is accomplished by integrating plasmonic metasurfaces with single-layer graphene.
