Exotic manipulation of radiation and sound
Able to make objects invisible, manipulate radiation, and even stop light, metamaterials possess physical properties not found in nature. Thanks to their structure, they enable novel effects and applications that go beyond the limits of what was previously possible. But what is behind it?
Whether ultra-thin lens, camouflage jacket or sound absorber – almost nothing seems impossible with metamaterials. It’s no wonder that these man-made, tailor-made structures are currently booming in research and technology. But what is the secret of her exotic abilities? And what applications are possible with it?
