Purdue Researchers Use AZO for Optical Metamaterials
from EE Times
Researchers at Purdue University have shown how to create metamaterials without the traditional silver or gold previously required for creating optical metamaterials. The Purdue researchers replaced the metals with an aluminum-doped zinc oxide (AZO). "This means we can have a completely new material platform for creating optical metamaterials, which offers important advantages," Alexandra Boltasseva, a Purdue University assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. Boltasseva said, in a statement. "The doped oxide brings not only enhanced performance but also is compatible with semiconductors."
