Metamaterials, fabricated microstructures having properties beyond those found in nature, are emerging as an important new class of materials with applications in many technology areas, from energy harvesting, through perfect imaging, to the much-hyped ‘cloaking’. A cohort of up to 20 PhD students per year will research a wide range of metastructures spanning 10 orders of scale, from atomic (graphene), through nano-scale, to control electron spin (spintronics) and light (plasmonics), up to the metre scale (radio antennas). Industrial and Government laboratory involvement is integral, ensuring cohort training relevant for today’s high-tech industries.
