From optical magnetism to second-order spatial dispersion in self-assembled metamaterials

Alexandre Baron

University of Bordeaux

Alexandre Baron is an assistant Professor at the University of Bordeaux in France and conducts his research at the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal. His expertise is in theoretical and experimental optics and currently collaborates closely with nanochemists and soft-matter physical chemists to study the optical properties of self-assembled composite materials. He has worked in the past at the Institute of Optics in Paris and at Duke University at the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics. His research interests are in nonlinear metamaterials and plasmonics, self-assembled metamaterials and disorder in photonic crystal waveguieds. 


The magnetic susceptibility of all natural materials is vanishingly small at high frequencies [1]. The metamaterials community has shown that optical magnetism could be realized using top-down fabricated structures, though at... [ view full abstract ]
