Caption: This is an artist's interpretation of the optical topological transition occurring in metamaterials. Here, the transformation from an ellipsoid to a hyperboloid (left) is associated with a huge increase in the light intensity inside the metamaterial (right). This video relates to a paper that appeared in the April 13, 2012, issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by H.N.S. Krishnamoorthy at Queens College, City University of New York in Flushing, NY, and colleagues was titled, “Topological Transitions in Metamaterials.”
