Harnessing Complexity

Systems comprising multiple and diverse interactions

The goal of the EXTREME Program is to develop new optical components, devices, systems, architectures and design tools using Engineered Optical Materials (EnMats) to enable new functionality and/or vastly improve size, weight, and power characteristics of traditional optical systems. EnMats are broadly defined to include, but are not limited to, metamaterials (both metallic and dielectric), scattering surfaces and volumes, holographic structures, and diffractive elements.
The TEMP DO seeks novel concepts that will leverage developments in materials and physics to control the direction and wavelength of thermal transport by radiation in the visible spectrum in extreme thermal environments.
