Conductive Electrifi filament helps Duke researchers make 3D printed electromagnetic metamaterials

Researchers at Duke University have used an electrically conductive material to 3D print potent electromagnetic metamaterials. The research could be used to improve Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and wireless sensing devices. 3D printed metamaterial cells can be combined like Lego bricks to create functional structures Metamaterials are materials engineered to have properties not found in nature. Uniquely, these properties are generally the result of the material’s engineered structure (which often consists of tiny repeating patterns) rather than what the metamaterials are made of. When arranged in particular ways, metamaterials can be used for a wide range of applications, functioning as lenses, […]
