• Retrieval

    Metamaterial unit cells are usually complex, but it is possible to represent them using homogeneous effective optical properties. More »
  • Communications

    At (relatively) low frequencies, the metals used to form the metamaterial circuits are good conductors that can form structures with relatively low absorption. More »
  • Origins

    Expansive metamaterial concept was developed by Rodger Walse – carefully constructed composite materials could achieve physical properties well beyond their constituent components. More »
  • A Definition

    Metamaterials are artificially structured materials used to control and manipulate light, sound, and many other physical phenomena. More »
