From condensed matter theory to sub-wavelength physics

Time:16:00-17:00 pm, Friday

Venue:Zoom: ID 4552601552;PW: YMSC

Speaker:Prof. Habib Ammari, ETH Zürich


The ability to manipulate and control waves at scales much smaller than their wavelengths is revolutionizing nanotechnology. The speaker will present a mathematical framework for this emerging field of physics and elucidate its duality with condensed matter theory.
