What is XM2?
A £12 million Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in metamaterials, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the University of Exeter and industry. XM² trains graduates to exploit the exciting field of metamaterials in industry and academia.
What are metamaterials?
- Metamaterials are fabricated microstructures with properties beyond those found in nature.
- They are emerging as an important new class of electromagnetic and acoustic materials.
- They have a wide range of applications in areas including energy harvesting, efficiency and storage; imaging; communications; electronic circuitry; sensing and ‘cloaking’.
