Abstract

original image

Plasmonic metamaterials exhibit strong and tunable dispersion, as a result of their pronounced resonances. On page 6300, Thomas Pertsch and co-workers show how the dispersive properties of a metamaterial with fishnet geometry can be used to design an ultrathin light-shaping element. The device produces different holographic images at two distinct wavelengths in the near IR range.
