摘要: Hyperbolic materials where principal components of the permittivity tensor have opposite signs enable a series of advances in nanophotonics and materials engineering including negative refraction, super-resolution imaging and ultrasensitive biomedical sensing. While hyperbolicity was previously achieved with metamaterials by artificial fabrication, we discovered natural hyperbolicity in hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) [Science 343, 1125 (2014)]. The hyperbolicity in phononic hBN is immune to electronic losses as directly revealed in nano-imaging of the hybrid light-matter waves – the polaritons. We further achieved polariton propagation elongation and loss compensation via isotopic enrichment [Nature Materials 17, 134 (2018)] and crystal suspending [Nano Letters (2019)]. The highly-confined and low-loss polaritons allow subdiffractional focusing and imaging via hBN slab with a record high resolution [Nature Communications 6, 6963 (2015)]. By stacking hBN, graphene and phase change materials in the form of heterostructures, we demonstrated the dynamic tuning of hyperbolic response with electrostatic gating [Nature Nanotechnology 10, 682 (2015)] and temperature control [arXiv 1809.09652 (2018)]. In parallel, we accomplished a high degree steering of polaritonic waves [Advanced Materials 19, 1706358 (2018)] as well as internal structure diagnosis in a fashion of polariton tomography [Nano Letters 18, 5205 (2018)].
