Three-dimensional meta-atoms for mid-wave infrared flat optics

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Three-dimensional (3D) meta-atoms can significantly outperform their planar (2D) or 2.5D counterparts. In this paper, a 3D meta-atom design strategy based on the Multi-Objective Lazy Ant Colony (MOLACO) algorithm and a Membrane Projection Lithography (MPL) fabrication technique is presented. When combined together these tools represent an extremely powerful methodology for realizing disruptive flat optical systems for operation in the Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) regime.
