12 February 2021

Dr. Victor Pacheco-Peña, Newcastle University Research Fellow (NURF), in collaboration with Professor Nader Engheta from the University of Pennsylvania (USA), recently had their Temporal aiming paper published as the cover story in nature journal Light Science and Applications

The paper was published as part of the journal's invited contribution in its December 2020 special edition - Topological photonics and beyond: novel concepts and recent advances - edited by Prof Zhigang Chen (San Francisco State University, USA), Prof Hrvoje Buljan (University of Zagreb, Croatia) and Dr Daniel Leykam (National University of Singapore).

In the paper Dr Pacheco-Peña and Professor Engheta showed a way to manipulate the direction of electromagnetic waves in real time by using temporal metamaterials, what's referred to in the paper as “Temporal aiming”.
