Metamaterials

Metamaterials are artificial composite materials, engineered to exhibit unique electromagnetic properties. Metamaterial devices are poised to grow to $10.7 billion globally by 2030 in 5G networks, autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles, and more.

Metamaterial designs enable devices that achieve much higher performance and efficiency than conventional offerings. Metamaterials offer the potential for deployment for telecommunication antennas, electromagnetic sensors like radar and lidar, vibration damping, energy harvesting, and wireless charging.

Commercialising Metamaterials presents a significant and timely challenge. These materials are not easy to understand, require sizable resources to deliver useful products, require skills and expertise that are difficult to find and require the creation of novel supply chains. There is much fundamental R&D to be undertaken and this is leading to a chronic failure to translate extant research into timely products and services. UK has excellent academic research in this field but lacks industrial uptake from end-users.

What is the Electromagnetic Spectrum and why should you care?  

As technologies progress, we are becoming increasingly reliant on spectrum use, from how we get our information and are entertained, to ensuring national security. So, if anything was to go wrong, it could have significant implications on how we live our life.
