Manufacturing Tech Council: Metamaterials in Manufacturing15 October 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Metamaterials, designed to exhibit properties not found in naturally occurringmaterials, sound like the stuff of science fiction - bending, blocking, absorbing and deflecting electronic, magnetic waves like light, among other things. They might even make your Invisibility Cloak possible! These composites, which can provide more elasticity, enhanced acoustical properties, and lighter-weight, more durable materials, promise a whole new generation of products and components. Explore the reality of metamaterials today and understand how they could be applied in your manufacturing setting.
