This work deals with the development of a new class of metamaterials based on phononic composite structures that can offer vibration protection in a wide range of applications. Such phononic heterostructures is a class of phononic crystals that exhibit spectral gaps with lattice constants of a few orders of magnitude smaller than the relevant acoustic wavelength. The design of a phononic composite metamaterial is based on the formation of omnidirectional frequency gaps. This is very much relevant to the dimensionality of a finite slab of the crystal. In this respect, two dimensional structures are used to cut off acoustic waves. In this study, different infrared thermography techniques were used in order to assess the phononic structure’s geometry, as well as to determine the thermal properties of the metamaterial.
