“Application of EM and acoustic metamaterials for sensing and actuating technologies”


Scheduling: Thursday September, 19 from 10.15 to 13.15 in Room E (Fabiana)

The workshop will bring together distinguished speakers to present the major results of the NOCTURNO project, but it will be also a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the latest achievements in the fields of electromagnetic and acoustic metamaterials and their application in sensing technologies. Some of the topics that will be addressed are bounded state in continuum, parity-time symmetry, and acoustic surface spoof plasmons, as well as how they can be applied for advanced sensing devices.
NOCTURNO project - Non-Conventional Wave Propagation for Future Sensing and Actuating Technologies is funded through H2020-MSCA-RISE programme, and it focuses on development of sensors and actuators based on non-conventional propagation of acoustic waves in artificial media, electromagnetic/optical sensors based on metasurfaces, and advanced manufacturing technologies with the aim to provide practical solutions for the fabrication of novel acoustic and metasurface-based sensors and actuators. The project consortium comprises renowned research groups from BioSense Institute, Serbia, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, University of Birmingham, UK, City University of New York and University of Texas at Austin, USA, Australian National University, Australia, University of Sofia, Bulgaria, and one SME - Plasmore, Italy.
