Rubber blanket at an atomic level

Scientists have successfully measured the distortions in 2D materials at microscopic level, which means it is now possible to observe precisely (point for point) how the properties of a material may be altered as a result of a simple distortion.

Metasurfaces enable improved optical lens performance

Producing the perfect color images we need and love often requires multiple, heavy lenses so that each color focuses in exactly the same plane. Now engineers have developed a new theory that solves the problem using a single thin lens comprised of gradient index materials and metasurface layers to properly direct the light.
