Metamaterials

Duke is home to a globally recognized group of researchers dedicated to the exploration of artificially structured materials and their potential impact across a broad range of technologies.

Duke is home to a globally-recognized group of metamaterials researchers

Our researchers study the fundamentals of metamaterials, including developing design techniques and strategies, as well as methods for the precise prediction and characterization of metamaterial properties.

Researchers consider the use of metamaterials not only across the electromagnetic spectrum—from microwaves to optics—but also across different branches of physics, including acoustics and fluid flow.
