Report: Metamaterials Will Partly Depend on Additive Manufacturing
Metamaterials don't exist in nature. Their unusual properties are engineered to make materials with specific novel electromagnetic, acoustic, or mechanical characteristics using carefully designed and controlled nanostructures or microstructures. (Source: Lux Research)
NIST's new five-year strategic plan for its Material Measurement Laboratory lists additive manufacturing materials development as one of the main areas it will support by developing measurements, data, techniques, and models.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
