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.

The book is intended to introduce both basic geometric optics and the laser. The materials are presented in an action-oriented format combining many of the features normally found in a textbook with those usually associated with a laboratory manual.
