Examining the use of Metamaterials for acoustic applications

Project description

Sounding the call: sound-shaping devices based on acoustic metamaterials are on the horizon

Metamaterials, from the Greek ‘meta’ meaning after or beyond, are an emerging class of functional materials with exotic and unexpected behaviours not seen in nature. Much of the current research targets unique patterns and structures on the subwavelength scale that can be used to create novel interactions with electromagnetic energy. The EU-funded Metasonics project is supporting the start-up by the same name and its MetaSonics technology harnessing metamaterials to shape, direct and focus sound waves in real time. The project aims to create prototypes of MetaSonics devices and develop a path to marketing and commercialisation.
