Metalenz, Inc., a startup spun-off from the Capasso group, has revealed its plans for revolutionizing consumer electronics by large-scale fabrication of flat optics to replace conventional lenses. Metalenz has received $10 million in investment from various venture capital funds including 3M Ventures and Intel Capital.
Metalenses are ultrathin nanostructures that allow one to sculpt the properties of light at the nanoscale. The Capasso group pioneered flat optics...
We are delighted to announce that Professor Capasso has been awarded the 2021 Frederic Ives Medal and Jarus W. Quinn Prize from the Optical Society of America (OSA). This award recognizes overall distinction in optics and is the highest award of the society. This year, this award was given to Professor Capasso for his work on optical physics, quantum electronics and nanophotonics.
Congratulations from all of us at the Capasso group!
