Indefinite Optical Cavity IFC (image) DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Share Print E-Mail Caption Indefinite optical cavities feature a hyperboloid iso-frequency contour that supports ultrahigh optical refractive indices. This cross-section shows the IFC (bronze curves) for a silver/germanium metamaterial with yellow circles representing cavity wave vectors and the green circle representing the light cone of air.
