What are Meta-Materials?
The era of 3D printing opens up many horizons and the capabilities of this technology extend far beyond providing a convenient way of producing familiar parts and products. Today, the dream of creating a new class of materials with an endless variety of possible features becomes an achievable goal.
Meta-Materials are materials with an engineered artificial micro-structure that is designed to produce desired physical and mechanical properties, which cannot be found in nature.
A new class of Meta-Materials
At FVMat, we have introduced a new concept of meta-materials that enables design and production of materials possessing extraordinary properties. For example, we can design materials with controllable density, stiffness, heat transfer, permeability, dielectric and electrical coefficients, among others. Moreover, our materials can alter their properties and adapt to changing external conditions.
The basic concept is simple, but the applications are vast!
The new meta-material’s micro-structure is composed of three main components:
1. A matrix – the main substance from which the material is made;
2. A void inside the matrix – with controllable shape and size;
3. A substance – particles, fluids, powders, gases, or any combination of the aforementioned – residing inside the void.
By controlling these building blocks, we can design materials with groundbreaking properties never thought of before.
