Researchers at Cornell University have proposed a method to modulate both the absorptive and refractive qualities of metamaterials in real time. Their findings present new opportunities to control — in both time and space — the propagation and scattering of waves for applications in various areas of wave physics and engineering.
The theoretical work aims to expand the capabilities of metamaterials to absorb or refract electromagnetic waves. Previous research was limited to modifying either absorption or refraction, though the Monticone Research Group, headed by Francesco Monticone of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has shown that if both qualities are modulated in real time, the effectiveness of the…READ MORE
