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.

About the Editors

Christopher Holloway Editor

Christopher L. Holloway is a Fellow of the IEEE and received the B.S. degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Since 2000 he has been with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Boulder, CO, where he works on electromagnetic theory. He is also on the Graduate Faculty at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research interests include electromagnetic field theory, wave propagation, guided wave structures, remote sensing, numerical methods, metamaterials, measurement techniques, EMC/EMI issues, and atom based metrology. Dr. Holloway has received numerous awards for his work on electromagnetic theory and radio wave propagation including most recently the 2013 IEEE APS Society Edward E. Altshuler Award. He holds U.S. Patents on electromagnetic absorbing materials, radar systems and antennas for atmospheric radars, and on volume measurements devices. He served as chair for US Commission A of the International Union of Radio Science (2012-2015) and is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility. He has published over 200 technical articles including: 115 refereed journal articles, 120 conference papers, 2 book chapter, and 31 technical reports.
