Optical metasurfaces, composed of planar arrays of sub-wavelength dielectric or metallic structures that collectively mimic the operation of conventional bulk optical elements, have revolutionized the field of optics by their potential in constructing high-efficiency and multi-functional optoelectronic systems with a compact form factor. By engineering the geometry, placement and alignment of its constituent elements, an optical metasurface arbitrarily controls the magnitude, polarization, phase, angular momentum, or dispersion of an incident light. The study of metasurface now spans various multidisciplinary fields in both fundamental research on light-matter interaction, and emerging applications from solid-state LiDAR to compact imaging and spectroscopy devices. To highlight the exciting developments in this field and to promote the diverse applications of metasurfaces, Prof. Cheng Zhang (Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China) and Prof. Din-Ping Tsai (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China) are organizing a special issue on Recent Advances in Optical Metasurfaces. Submission deadline is November 15, 2020.
