Raspberry-like nanostructures as light-bending metamaterials

Researchers have devised a way of mass-producing metamaterials that exhibit magnetic resonance in optical frequencies. Called 'raspberry-like metamolecules' due to their unique shape, these nanoscale structures could be used as building blocks for metamaterials that could scatter light as if they had magnetic properties, which could be relevant to applications in optical processing and signal handling.
