Introductory Senior-level course on electromagnetic and optical metamaterials. The properties of matter can be molded and tailored on subwavelength spatial scales yielding 'metamaterials' with properties very different from naturally occurring materials, thereby opening up new directions for applications. The course introduces the electromagnetic and optical properties of surface plasmons and polaritons, artificial magnetic materials, negative-index materials, nanostructured optical materials, etc. The course also discusses the applications of these materials in diverse areas including electromagnetic cloaking and invisibility, stealth technologies, optical super-lensing, bio-chemical sensing, conformal optics, meta-surfaces, and non-reciprocal devices.
