Inverse design of engineered materials for extreme optical devices

Optical devices based on engineered materials can achieve performances not possible with conventional design methodologies. However, these performances come at the cost of relatively unconstrained design spaces which necessitates the development of efficient optimization algorithms. Furthermore, engineered optical devices, as opposed to classical designs, may possess multifunctional behaviors which places additional demands on the optimization algorithms in order to maximize the performance. To this end, two custom state-of-the-art multi-objective optimization algorithms are presented and their application towards the inverse design of engineered materials for the realization of extreme optical devices is discussed.
