Electromagnetics and Photonics


Research Accomplishments
Spatially Variant Lattices
Capable of spatially varying unit
cell orientation, lattice spacing, fill
fraction, material composition,
and more, in arbitrary patterns
without deforming the unit cells
or introducing defects.

Spatially Variant Anisotropic


Metamaterials (SVAMs)
Improves electromagnetic
compatibility by reshaping
the near-field around
components. Excellent for
placing antennas and other
components in close
proximity.

Spatially Variant Photonic Crystals


Controls light in three
dimensions with unprecedented
abruptness even using low
refractive index. World record
for tightest bend of unguided
optical beam. Able to multiplex
different functions and physics
within the same volume of space.
