Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Metamaterials have been widely used in the past few years for RF as well as acoustic shielding applications. These are typically only applicable over a limited bandwidth, and there has been limited research in the metamaterial absorber design for combined acoustic and RF application, from a few Hz up to 30 GHz. There are additional research gaps that RF absorption effects suffer from the incidence polarization of its signal, meaning that shielding often does not fulfill the requirements in the IC’s scenarios, as outlined in the last section.
In this topic we would like to explore the research and development of novel lightweight metamaterial absorbers to provide the frequency absorption over a wideband range from a few Hz to 30 GHz that is insensitive to the incident signal phase.
The development would help in providing an absorption and attenuation of various sound and RF signals emanating from multiple consumer devices and sources and bring new vitality into traditional approaches.
