Metasurfaces for ultrafast light structuring (METAFAST) has been funded under the FET OPEN - HORIZON 2020 programme! 
METAFAST explores the feasibility of a new strategy for SAM and OAM structuring based on a light-by-light manipulation approach, potentially leading to several orders of magnitude improvement in the optical transmission rate, for post 5G generation Peta bit/s data links. Our idea is to develop a novel class of synthetic nonlinear optical materials or metamaterials as a disruptive platform to achieve unprecedented dynamical control over light polarization and wavefront.
The project was developed by University of Brescia in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano, Université Paris Diderot, Friedrich Schiller University Jena and Sofia University.
