Metamaterials belong to the class of artificial materials that can be engineered to exhibit properties that cannot be found in nature such as the negative index of refraction. Metamaterials offer the exciting new opportunities for controlling and modifying the flow of electromagnetic radiation. In combination with conventional materials, artificially engineered electromagnetic metamaterials open new ways to a number of applications in microwave, tetrahertz and photonic devices that range from super-resolution optical instruments and microwave antennas to photonic signal processing circuits. More recent developments include the expanding studies of metasurfaces, all-dielectric metamaterials, and hybrid metamaterials and metadevices incorporating graphene and other two-dimensional materials. Research is also very active on mechanical metamaterials, especially acoustic metamaterials designed to control, direct and manipulate acoustic, infrasonic and ultrasonic waves. This Symposium seeks to enlighten recent progress and stimulate an open discussion among experts of this multidisciplinary fascinating area of research with a view on the perspectives opened by exploring its potential in present and forecast applications.
