This effort will advance the state of the art in hyperspectral imaging through the use of metamaterials, which have a negative refractive index.  This technology enables more compact & durable, lighter weight designs for hyperspectral detection, which is crucial for deployment on smaller UAV systems. The team of NanoLab and Boston College together have world-class capabilities in nanoscale fabrication and modelling of metamaterial systems, and are developing a solution that minimizes the angular sensitivity common in other metamaterial surfaces. Further this technology is applicable across the entire visible to IR spectrum, and should create game changing opportunities for hyperspectal sensing.
