Flat optics holds the promise of fundamentally changing the fields of imaging and displays. Using metasurfaces, optically thin surfaces with subwavelength feature sizes, superior control of light can be achieved. From 3D holographic displays to pigment-less color rendering, they are expected to change the field of bulky optics as we know it.
In this master thesis, existing metasurfaces will be characterized and the underlying phenomena will be modeled. As an additional step, the characterization and modeling learnings will be used to suggest and model new designs for such metasurfaces using numerical simulations.
