Metamaterials, artificially structured composite materials with subwavelength unit cells, exhibit exotic properties not easily obtainable in nature. This review presents the fundamentals, recent advances and future perspectives in the emerging field.
by A.S. Percival - Longmans, Green, and Co.
This book is primarily intended for medical students as a textbook on the subject of Geometrical Optics for their preliminary scientific examinations, though it practically contains all the Optics required by an ophthalmic surgeon.
