Abstract


As the field of metamaterial reaches a certain level of development, new directions and novel vistas will appear in the horizon.  Modularization and parameterization of metamaterials may be exploited to provide new functionalities and possibilities stemming from such interesting platforms.  These may include “meta-systems” that can be formed on the metamaterial paradigms, and new functionalities as “meta-functions” resulting from proper combinations of meta-systems and metamaterials.  In this talk, I will discuss some of these concepts, topics, and directions in the field of metamaterials that are being explored in my group.
