The Metamaterials Engineering Research Group is leading research in theoretical and practical studies of electromagnetic artificial metamaterials and metasurfaces for applications in communications, radar and microwave/THz systems. The research in the group is directed towards providing innovative solutions for the development of antennas, microwave circuits, focusing/imaging systems, frequency selective surfaces, spatial/quasi-optical phase shifters and RF front-ends from lower microwave frequencies to higher mm-wave and Terahertz frequency bands.
