Research and development of integrated optical components for fiber-based optoelectronics is continuously evolving. Besides the miniaturization to the tens of micrometers scale, the aim is also to develop new and more efficient tunable devices.
The projects Reconfigurable Metasurfaces for Telecommunications aims at developing tunable nanostructured devices (metasurfaces) in the near-infrared wavelengths range (1200 – 1600nm), useful for fiber-based telecommunications and devices.
The proposed devices will be different than simple swithes or splitter. They will be more complex, allowing in fact unique combination of several optical functionalities, like focusing or filtering, according to on a specific need.
