Mr Joseph Beadle
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (TEAM-A)
Between 2011-2015 I studied a MPhys phyics at the university of Exeter. My masters reseach project was on the effect that structuring had on the radar cross sectio of small metalic elements.
I studied my PhD in the centre of doctoral training in metamaterials at the University of Exeter between 2015-2019, supervised by Prof. J. R. Sambles and Prof. A. P. Hibbins. I experimentally explored the effect of struturing surfaces on the propagation of bound acoustic surface modes. Such structured surfaces are known as metasurfaces. In airborne acoustics, I investigated phemonena such as phase resonances, the effect of introducting glide symmtery to such surfaces and angle-independence. Towards the end of my PhD I moved from airborne acoustics to underwater acoustics, here I explored the effect of adding a simple gratings (one groove per unit) to soft-solid acoustic plates.
Currently, I am a research fellow of the University of Exeter based in QinetiQ at Farnborough. In this project I will be investigating novel underwater metamaterials.
