Study and fabrication of metamaterials for electronics and telecommunications applications


The research activities developed by five Italian academic partners (Universities of Roma Tre and “La Sapienza”, Sannio, Salerno, and Naples “Federico II”) in the frame of a PRIN 2006 research project, supported by the “Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca,” are presented. The project involves theoretical investigation, numerical analysis, fabrication, and experimental characterization of metamaterials and (quasi-) periodic structures for applications in electronic devices and telecommunication systems. After a brief introduction about the main goals of the project, the scientific results achieved by the different research units will be detailed.
