Volume . Metamaterials for Biomedical Applications

Published: 1st January 2020 Editor: Christopher Holloway
Meta-materials are man-made electromagnetic composites, typically made of highly conducting metals, whose structures respond to electromagnetic waves in ways that atoms in natural materials do not. A vast amount of research and funding is currently being invested in this emerging technology with the hope that new applications, particularly in the medical and defence field will be developed. This book discusses the current status of this technology and its applications with particular focus on medical imaging and clinical applications.
