Recent advances in nanofabrication now allow sub-wavelength photonic structures to be manufactured which are of similar complexity to those used in the microwave community for many decades. The idea of the NANOMETA meeting was to bring together the extensive experience of microwave electrical engineers in structured materials and the emerging community of photonics researchers interested in the physics of light coupled to nanostructures.
The overlap between these two groups of scientists became apparent a few years ago with the possibility to revolutionize electrodynamics by developing media that displayed negative refraction, for which the term "metamaterials" was coined. Today this term covers materials with all sorts of unusual electromagnetic functionalities that may be achieved by sub-wavelength structuring.
