Metamaterials are artificially structured materials to provide material properties that go beyond those given by naturally occurring materials. In this project, we will explore how a single layer of metamaterial atoms, termed as a metasurface, can be used to manipulate light or acoustic waves. In particular, we are interested in chiral or bianisotropic properties of metamaterials.
The students are expected to conduct simulations or experiments for a particular design of metasurface. Transmission, reflection, or wavefront modification will be investigated.
1) Understanding the working principles of metamaterials.
2) Hand-on experience from design to experiment of a metamaterial sample
