Nanotechnology  enables  the redesign of optical components into thin, and planar  elements with much easier control of aberrations than conventional optics, ease of optical alignment as well as the introduction of a new class of multifunctional devices, with a concomitant major reduction in footprint and complexity. The planarity of flat optics will lead to the unification of semiconductor and optics  manufacturing,  where the planar technology to manufacture computer chips will be adapted to make CMOS-compatible metalenses for cell phones, wearable displays,  new cameras as well as wide range of multifunctional devices.
