Tunable “Metalens” is a Breakthrough in Photonics

MIT engineers recently designed a tunable “metalens” that can zero in on objects at multiple depths. The lens, constructed from a transparent “phase-changing” material capable of rearranging its atomic structure after heating, is capable of transforming how its material interacts with light. The invention is a breakthrough in the field of photonics. Traditionally, changing the […]
