17 April 2017 Bioinspired multicontrollable metasurfaces and metamaterials for terahertz applications
Author Affiliations +
Inspired by biological multicontrollability, we have devised the concept of multicontrollable metasurfaces. Comprising electrically small elements called MetaAtoms, a metasurface could be either homogeneous or graded on the wavelength scale for operation in the terahertz regime. The MetaAtoms would comprise diverse pixels each of which is made of magnetically controlled, thermally controlled, electrically controlled, or optically controlled material. Stacks of parallel multicontrollable metasurfaces would function as multicontrollable metamaterials.
