Our research group interests are in the electromagnetic theory of metamaterials, a class of man-made materials that do not exist in nature and have unique optical properties. Specifically, our research focuses on the design of such materials based on the classical electromagnetic theory as well as quantum electrodynamics. Two notable applications of metamaterials are in the development of invisibility devices at optical frequencies and electromagnetic analogues of gravitational singularities (black holes).
