Nano-spheres dispersed nematic liquid crystals for broadband tunable negative-zero-positive index materials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It is demonstrated that by introducing gain and nano-spheres in aligned nematic liquid crystals, one can design metamaterials which possess broadband tunable negative-zero-positive index with relatively low loss compared to other material systems.
