Metamaterials are a new and emerging technology with vast potential to reshape our views on what is and isn’t possible in this physical world of ours. Unlocking the mysteries and overcoming the obstacles associated with metamaterials would lead to a host of technological advances once thought impossible by even the most imaginative of individuals. From making computer chips smaller and faster than the most advanced current ones, to protecting structures from earthquakes, to developing imaging technology that doesn’t harm tissue (to replace x-rays), all the way to cloaking (also known as invisibility), the applications of metamaterials are exciting and boundless. However, the structures of metamaterials are enormously complicated, and in each area, there are significant obstacles to overcome. COMSOL Multiphysics has been used in research to solve the problems associated with these applications.
