### Abstract

This special issue presents a cross-section of recent progress in the rapidly developing area of optics of hyperbolic metamaterials

© 2013 OSA

*metamaterials*– engineered multi-phase composite materials containing inclusions that often have tailored shapes, sizes, mutual arrangements and orientations. Such materials exhibit unparalleled responses to many types of wave excitations, including electromagnetic, acoustic and thermal.

*hyperbolic (meta)material*(also known as indefinite media). Although few natural materials have hyperbolic dispersion in the far-infrared range, known hyperbolic media in the

*visible*and

*near-infrared*parts of the spectrum are engineered metamaterials: ordered arrays of metallic nanowires and lamellar metal/dielectric or semiconductor multi-layered thin film structures. Because of their unique dispersion characteristics, hyperbolic metamaterials can propagate waves with nominally infinitely large wavevectors (and infinitely short wavelengths) and have a broad-band singularity of the (nominally infinite) density of photonic states. The former property is used in a “hyperlens” providing for a deep sub-wavelength resolution, while the latter phenomenon leads to a wide range of fundamental quantum and classical effects.
