MetaMaterials ORganized for radio, millimeter wave, and PHOtonic Superlattice Engineering

Objective

The main scientific objective of this Network is to develop new types of artificial materials, called metamaterials, with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found among natural materials. The results of this development should lead to a conceptually new range of radio, microwave, and optical technologies, based on revolutionary new materials made by large-scale assembly of some basic elements (microscopic and baroscopic) in unprecedented combinations. These artificial electromagnetic functional materials are engineered to satisfy the prescribed requirements. Joint research activities of this Network will include composite materials with extreme electromagnetic properties (such as "left-handed" media and materials with null-valued effective parameters), electrically controllable materials, stop band materials, met geometries like fractals and quasi-periodical structures, artificial surfaces and sheets. The strategic objective to develop new met materials means opening anew branch of research in the multidisciplinary field of material physics, electromagnetic, optics, radio engineering, and electronics. The Network activities should result in: Common European research platform and mature scientific community; Integrated Projects in strategically targeted areas; A new international PhD program; Web-based learning tools and an information platform; Established mechanism for common use of research facilities; Established regular scientific conferences and workshops. The Metamorphose initiative integrates 13 different countries around Europe from North (FIN, S) to South (E, I, GR, TR) and from East (PL, RUS) to West (UK, B) passing through its centre (F, D, CH). In all these countries, very advanced technological facilities have been developed (computing centres, nana-electronic facilities, high frequency characterization of materials), all of them being of prime importance in the lasting integration of the Metamorphose #
