The course is aimed at post-graduate research students in Physics, Material Science, and Engineering, as well as at academic and industrial experts, who are interested in the manipulation of electromagnetic waves with metasurfaces. Metasurfaces constitute a special class of optically thin metamaterials of growing interest. They are generally composed of two-dimensional assemblies of resonant sub-wavelength elements which may provide large phase jumps to a light wave with limited losses. A full control of the reflected and transmitted fields may hence be reached with metasurfaces of appropriate designs. The course – taught by eminent scientists working in the fields of electromagnetic metamaterials and metasurfaces (from microwaves to optics),– aims at reviewing the basic principles on the theory, design, experiments and applications of metasurfaces.
