The research groups of the Thomas Young Centre frequently publish important advances that are of interest to a wide multi-disciplinary audience. The items on our "Science Highlights" pages are short summaries of some of these advances, usually based on publications in high-impact journals.

Generating colour 3D images from planar metasurface.jpg

As part of an international collaboration between King’s College London and the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, researchers have developed a novel way of generating 2D images with shading effects of 3D objects using a reflective metasurface performing through the entire visible spectral range.
