10 Centimeter Diameter metalens for astronomy.

A newly-developed “metalens” has showcased promise in capturing high-resolution images of celestial bodies like our Sun, Moon, and even some distant objects.

The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) created the first all-glass metalens, which has a diameter of only 10 cm.

With the rising interest in capturing images of celestial objects, the innovative metalens might be a game changer in the development of next-generation optics for telescopes.
