'Metasurfaces' that manipulate light at tiny scales could find uses in consumer technology

Most of us know optical lenses as curved, transparent pieces of plastic or glass, designed to focus light for microscopes, spectacles, cameras, and more. For the most part, a lens' curved shape has not changed much since ...
