Abstract / Description of output

Parvez Alam explores the growth in metamaterials research in recent years.

“The emergent properties of metamaterials” is a term that I come across more often now than I did a few years ago. Why so? Those with an interest in metamaterials will be aware of a notable exponential growth in metamaterials research in recent years. A metamaterial is a material with properties resulting from its structure, rather than solely from its composition. The recent surge in interest is in part because metamaterials, which can be rationally designed to exhibit highly varied properties and behaviours, can now also be manufactured more easily than ever before. Importantly, the growth of interest in metamaterials also permits a significant expansion in the design space within which researchers can work.
