  • The Future Of Metasurface Optics — A Q&A With Metalenz CEO Robert Devlin

    July 6, 2022

    Photonics Online :: Recently, much ado has been made about metasurface lenses. They’re incredibly compact and are increasingly producing high-quality images. What’s more, they can be made alongside semiconductors on-site in the very same foundries. That’s what Metalenz has hooked onto. They’ve established a partnership with STMicroelectronics to streamline their supply chain and, for the first time, bring metasurface optics into consumer products on a large scale.
    I recently chatted with Metalenz CEO Robert Devlin, who cofounded the company alongside Harvard University Professor of Applied Physics Federico Capasso, about the company’s beginnings, how its business partnership evolved, the challenges of integrating into consumer products, and what he believes is the future of metasurface optics.
