Description
Metamaterials are materials that are man-made and can have properties that no natural material could have, for instance light entering a metamaterial slab can be bent in the opposite manner to that which one would usually expect. This is not merely a scientific curiosity, it can have profound implications leading to sub-wavelength imaging, focusing, invisibility cloaks amongst other effects and this, in turn, can lead to materials with unexpected and novel properties. Much of the interest in metamaterials has thus far been in optics and electromagnetism, but it is clear that the underlying ideas should be applicable in other contexts such as elasticity, diffusio...
