Shaping Light in Exotic Ways
Flat devices capable of
manipulatinglight in ways that are very difficult or impossible to achieve with conventional optical components have been created by members of the Faraon group. The new devices are made of silicon nano pillars, arranged in a honeycomb pattern, that results in a "metasurface" which can control the paths and properties of passing light waves.

Efficient Fuel Production
A key barrier to a clean-energy economy is the ability to generate and store renewable energy. Researchers at JCAP, working with KNI Board members Harry Atwater and Nate Lewis, have made major advances towards the goal of finding a cost-effective method for producing fuels by mimicking photosynthesis.
