AbstractThrough the advancements in semiconductor industry, it is possible to control light at the scale of the wavelength. This enables new novel applications known as meta-surfaces. I had the great honor to work with Prof. Dr. Federico Capasso on this exciting topic. Under his supervision I was able to demonstrate a meta-lens doublet in the visible region, calculate fundamentals of meta-lens imaging with substrates and demonstrate a highly efficient chiral meta-lens. While meta-surfaces are able to control optical flows, matter flows for droplet generation can be controlled by microfluidic droplet makers. I had the honor and privilege to work with Prof. Dr. Don Ingber and Prof. Dr. David Weitz on a flow focusing mircofluidic droplet maker which was motivated through a commercial need. Those four projects are the cornerstones of my Ph.D. thesis.
