What are Meta-Optics?
Meta-optics (metasurface optics), are a fundamentally new way to transform light with unprecedented accuracy. Gain performance and space advantages and unlock new capabilities with multifunctional meta-optics made in standard semiconductor foundries.

Yes, AR coating is applied to maximize the transmission efficiency.
Metalenses consist of nano-structures that create a phase-shift in light that passes through, which allows the light flow to be fully controlled in a process very similar to beam-forming. Fresnel lenses on the other hand have coarser grooved structures that bend the light that passes through according to traditional refractive/diffractive principles, providing much more limited control over the light patterns that can be created.
Exceptionally large, including automotive ranges (e.g. -40°C to 110°C). Metasurfaces are inorganic materials with very low thermal expansion and very low thermal expansion mismatches, and the layering deposition process ensures no de-lamination over wide range of temperature.
