Welcome to Francesco Monticone's research group webpage

We investigate fundamental questions of wave physics, and their practical implications



Assistant Professor
School of Electrical and Computer Engineering - Cornell University



Our current research interests are in the areas of applied electromagnetics, metamaterials, plasmonics, and nano-photonics, with applications ranging from microwaves to optical frequencies. In this context, we investigate – theoretically, numerically and experimentally – innovative and extreme aspects of wave interaction with engineered metamaterials and nano-structures, which may have strong scientific and practical impact in the coming years.
