Towards non-reciprocal devices using metamaterials

Scientists have developed a material that breaks one of the fundamental principles governing many physical systems. Ordinary materials transmit external forces equally, no matter where the pressure comes from. The newly developed material breaks this rule and could potentially be of interest in soft-robotics or shock absorption related applications.  The research team from AMOLF, Leiden Read more about Towards non-reciprocal devices using metamaterials[…]
