Electromagnetic metamaterials

Electromagnetic metamaterials are man-made structures whose exotic properties can be defined and manipulated by engineering spatial distribution of their building block (cf. Sketch). These materials possess unusual properties including (not limited to) negative refractive index and cloaking devices which cannot… Read More ›

Metallic materials

Metals are known as the class of materials with some unique properties such as shiny surface, good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and malleability. Malleability means metals can be deformed and shaped upon application of mechanical forces (e.g. hammering) without cracking. The… Read More ›
