Oral talks also were given by Anastasia Krylova ("Tailoring Lattice Parameters For Broadband Artificial Diamagnetism"), Ilya Yagypov ("Tailoring Lattice Parameters For Broadband Artificial Diamagnetism"), Pavel Voroshilov ("Enhanced Light Trapping with Optical Nanoantennas for Thin-Film Solar Cells") and Alexey Slobozhanyuk ("Wire Metamaterial: Enhancement of Evanescent Waves and Application for Improvement of Magnetic Resonance Imaging"). Alena Chshelokova and Pavel Buslaev presented posters. The next congress will take place in Denmark, during the last week of August 2014.
27 - 31 may 2013, Saint Petersburg, RussiaDays on Diffraction 2013
Workshop on Metamaterials will be held in the part of "Days on Diffraction 2013" on 27-31 may 2013. Contributions on the wave phenomena in metamaterials are welcome. Original and review papers related to electromagnetics of left-handed and hyperbolic media, plasmonic nanostructures, electromagnetic and photonics crystals, high-impedance surfaces or any other artificial structures with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found among natural materials are of the special interest. The papers are expected to be focused on the theoretical studies or numerical modeling, rather than on experimental investigations and industrial applications, but the latter are also welcome. Organizer of the workshop - Dr. Pavel Belov, NRU ITMO (Russia).
Call for papers
