Leading expertise in engineering, physics and materials science from academia and industry delivering a palette of novel, multi-functional 3D metamaterials using emerging additive manufacturing. 



With total funding of around £5M, the goal is to compile a palette of meta-atoms, the basic building blocks of metamaterials. These building blocks will then be systematically organised to deliver desirable properties with the potential to transform technologies. 

Working with industry


This is transformational science placing the UK at the leading edge of engineering, stimulating economic growth and opening up huge potential for innovation in many sectors. We welcome approaches from companies who share our research interests.
