Congratulations to Kevin West, Jiwei Lu, and Stu Wolf on their recent publication in the Journal Nature

Kevin West, Jiwei Lu, and Stu Wolf were among affiliated authors on the article "Terahertz-field-induced insulator-to-metal transition in vanadium dioxide metamaterial" in the July 11, 2012 issue of Nature.

 The lead authers were Mengkun Liu and Harold Y. Hwang.  The research furthers the understanding of materials that will potentially shape the next generation of electronic materials.  Specifically, this research "provides a powerful platform to investigate low-energy dynamics in condensed matter and, further, demonstrates that integration of metamaterials with complex matter is a viable pathway to realize functional nonlinear electromagnetic composites"
