  • In our laboratory structures with special electromagnetic properties, often called metamaterials are designed, fabricated and characterized. The fundamental idea behind the metamaterial research is that the interaction of electromagnetic waves with matter is governed not only by the chemical composition, but structuring can produce novel properties, which are not available in bulk form. We can design structures from microwave and mm wave frequencies to the optical wavelengths. The designed structures can find their applicabilty in several industries, e.g. in telecommunications by increasing the performance of antennas, they can be applied as novel sensing platforms for biomedical and environmental applications or as metasurfaces for subwavelength imaging.
