"Epsilon-near-zero" devices are a class of photonic devices (novel waveguides, scatterers, resonators) that operate at a frequency at which one of their components has dielectric permittivity nearly zero. I'll discuss recent results, obtained in joint work with Bob Kohn, about their robustness, and their shape design.
