8 Amazing Uses For Metamaterials

Metamaterials are a mind-bending class of matter. Broadly defined as man-made materials with unusual properties not found in nature, this category of materials is probably most famous for serving as the building blocks for a Harry Potter-style invisibility cloak. But so much more is possible.

One thing that all Metamaterials have in common is the ability to make waves behave strangely. This can lead to electromagnetic waves zigging when they should zag and sound waves curving in ways they don’t normally do. The list is almost limitless, but we’ve put together a few of the exciting uses for Metamaterials that are just over the horizon.

  • Bend light to effectively create an invisibility cloak. This works exactly like it sounds which is what’s so impressive.

  • Construct satellite trackers that never need to move. Similar technology could serve as portable, energy-efficient satellite communication units for soldiers on the battlefield.


  • Enable ultra-fast data processing. Metamaterials could also reduce the size of chips so that they’d be tiny and speedy.

  • Become the building blocks for a high-speed fiber-optic telecommunications network. Not only can they beam the internet to airplanes, Metamaterials can make up the internet itself.


  • Build a better smartphone camera lenses. Metamaterial technology could actually create better lenses in general—ones that can do things existing lenses can’t.

Call For Abstracts : NanoElectronics

Nanoelectronics is based on the application of nanotechnology in the field of electronics and electronic components. Although the term Nanoelectronics may generally mean all the electronic components, special attention is given in the case of transistors. These transistors have a size lesser than 100 nanometres. Visibly, they are very small that separate studies have to be made for knowing the quantum mechanical properties and inter-atomic design. As a result, though the transistors appear in the nanometre range, they are designed through nanotechnology. Their design is also very much different from the traditional transistors and usually falls in the category of one-dimensional nanotubes/nanowires, hybrid molecular electronics, or advanced molecular electronics.

Basic Concept of Nanoelectronics

Although a nanoelectronic device can be made fully functional, the work load it can do is restricted to its size. The basic principle is that the power of a machine will increase according to the increase in volume, but the amount of friction that the machine’s bearings hold will depend on the surface area of the machine.

For the small size of the nanoelectronic device cannot be used for the moving of heavy load like a mechanical device. If such a task is tried, it will fail as the available power will be easily overcome by the frictional forces. So, it is sure that these devices have limitations in real world applications.

Different Approaches to Nanoelectronics

This method is used to design arrays or layers of nanoelectronic device to work for a single operation. Nanoelectromechanical systems are also a part of nanofabrication.

In Nanoelectronics, the transistors are packed as arrays on to a single chip. Thus they remain in a uniform manner and symmetrical in nature. Thus they are known to have a more speedy movement of electrons in the material. The dielectric constant of the device also increases and the electron or hole characteristics also become symmetrical in nature.

The conventional computers with a big processor will be replaced with Nanocomputers with nanoprocessors that will have higher performance and speed than the conventional computers. Researchers are performing various experiments on by using nanolithographic methods to design better nanoprocessors. Experiments are also taking place by replacing the CMOS components in conventional processors with nanowires. The FET’s in the computers are replaced by carbon nanotubes.

The devices using Nanoelectronics technology also includes solar cells that are highly efficient and cheaper than the conventional ones. If such efficient solar energy can be created it would be a revolution to the global energy needs.

Using the technology, researchers are developing a generator for energy production in vivo called bio-nano generators. Basically, the generator is an electrochemical device which is designed in nanoscale size.  It works like a fuel cell which generates the power by absorbing the blood glucose in a living body. The glucose will be separated from the body with the help of an enzyme. This enzyme separates the glucose from the electrons and makes them useful for generating power.

The power generated through such a device will be only a few watts as the body itself needs some glucose for its normal functioning. This small power can be used to power up devices placed inside the body like pacemakers or sugar-fed nanorobots.

Call For Abstracts : Functional Graded Materials

functionally graded material (FGM) is a two-component composite characterized by a compositional gradient from one component to the other. In contrast, traditional composites are homogeneous mixtures, and they therefore involve a compromise between the desirable properties of the component materials.  Here combination of materials are used to serve the purpose of thermal barrier which are capable of withstanding surface temperature of 200k and temperature gradient of 1000k across a 10mm section. Basic structure units of FGM’s are elements (or) materials gradients represented by MAXEL. These are uses to remove the sharp interface.

Concrete, paper, corrugated cardboard, plywood, fiberglass, bamboo, cornstalks, trees, bricks… all are composite materials. Here are 10 more interesting facts about composites:

  1. Concrete is the most commonly used composite.
  2. About 10 billion tons are made every year – more than one cubic metre for every person on Earth
  3. There are many natural composites including bone, wood and rock
  4. The earliest man-made composite material were bricks made of straw and mud. The ancient Egyptians recorded these being made in tomb paintings
  5. Modern surfboards are made from fiberglass, a cheap composite material of glass fiber and a plastic polymer. Before the 1960s they were made from wood
  6. Gore-Tex is a composite which is used to make clothing. It contains layers of different materials which work together to create a fabric which is waterproof and breathable
  7. Around half of the materials used to make an aeroplane are composites
  8. Scientists have invented self-healing plastics. These composite materials contain chemicals which are released and form new plastic when the item becomes damaged
  9. Carbon nanotubes can be incorporated into materials to make them extremely strong but lightweight. In the future we may be able to use them to build an elevator into space!
  10. 3D printing will become more useful in creating composite materials in the future. They can be used to print layers of different materials making new types of composites

Call For Abstracts : Nanolithography

What is Nanolithography

Nanotechnology has given birth to many useful sub technologies, one of them is the Nanolithography. It is a science which deals with structure at microscopic level for detecting, writing, printing and communicating their characteristics to concerned parts.

How Nanolithography works?

Nanolithography is used in the many fields of applications, it is  a branch of nanotechnology which is used for further fabrications of nanometer materials and molecules. It is used during the integration of edge semiconductors, integrated nanocircuitry or nanoelectromechanical systems.Two of most important instruments used in the nanolithography processing are

Scanning Probe Microscope 

The Scanning probe microscope permits the surface viewing in advanced detail without modifying it and both SPM and the ATM could be engaged to write, or print on a surface in individual atom direction.

Types of Nanolithography

Nanolithography has many a type according to the area of work in which it is used. Some of them are listed below with brief description.

1)Optical nanolithography

Optical lithography, is a technique for patterning the various surfaces and have the capability for producing  sub patterns up-to to 100 nm with minor wave lengths. Optical nanolithography requires the use of liquid immersion and resolution host.Most experts feel that optical nano lithography techniques are most cost effective then traditional  methods of lithography.

Optical+lithography+Resolution_2)X-ray Nanolithography

Another type of nanolithogrphy is the x ray nanolithography which is quite different from traditional X-ray lithography.It has the ability to improve and extend  optical resolution of 15 nm by using the short wavelengths of 1 nm for the illumination. This is performed by printing approach and is used for batch processing.
