We develop a new approach to negative index materials and
subwavelength imaging in the far field based on
strong anisotropy of the dielectric response. In contrast to
conventional negative refraction systems, our method does not rely on
magnetic resonance and does not require periodic patterning--leading
to lower losses and high tolerance to fabrication defects.

Metamaterials, i.e. artificial engineered structures with properties not available in nature are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials. Negative-refractive index metamaterials create entirely new prospects for guiding light on the nanoscale, some of which may have revolutionary impact on present-day optical technologies.

This talk will describe negative refractive index metamaterials that are
based on transmission-line networks. It will focus on microwave structures
that consist of transmission lines loaded with reactive elements. Both
planar and volumetric negative refractive index metamaterials will be
presented and their operation explained. Finally, ways to push these
transmission-line based structures to optical frequencies using plasmonic
materials will be described.

Rajeswari Chandrasekaran (Ford Motor Company)
A brief historical review of various chemistries that have been used in batteries for automotive applications will be provided. This will be followed by an overview of Ford’s electrification strategy and our research and advanced engineering efforts. Next, the material components of lithium-ion cells and modeling of these electrochemical energy storage devices will be discussed. Finally, the challenges in this field and potential opportunities for interdisciplinary research to meet our goals will be highlighted with specific examples from our present collaborations.
