Abstract

The spacetime metric of a spinning cosmic string may be formally represented in flat spacetime by a nonhomogeneous bianisotropic medium. The constitutive parameters of this bianisotropic medium can be established using a noncovariant formalism, thereby paving the way for laboratory simulations of a spinning cosmic string using metamaterial technology.
