The team is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the University of Exeter and QinetiQ
Materials that have the ability to fully control and manipulate the flow of electromagnetic (e.g radiated heat, light, radiowaves) and acoustic (e.g sound, vibration, shock) energy have the potential to transform, and enable, a large and diverse range of technologies. Exeter and QinetiQ have long been at the forefront of the science and engineering of such materials. Throughout this 5 year Prosperity Partnership we will be exploring areas such as Microwave and Radiofrequency, Terahertz and Infrared, Acoustics, Modelling and Manufacturing.
Our PhD students and Research Fellows
Our PhD students will train in association with the University of Exeter’s Centre for Doctoral Training in Metamaterials.
Our Research Fellows will have access to our extensive training material, both through the University of Exeter, QinetiQ and external providers.
Being a multidisciplinary research programme we have access to a myriad of facilities both on Streatham campus at the University of Exeter and off campus at the QinetiQ group in Farnborough.
To explore but a few of our facilities at the University of Exeter:
- Our Physics labs are equipped with nanofabrication and rapid prototyping technologies, and characterisation facilities in the visible, terahurts, microwave and acoustic regimes.
- The Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing
- The wider facilities homed in the Departments of Computer Science and Engineering
