Sci fi or real tech? Imagine the impossible made possible with metamaterials technologies. Let us have a close look.
Mobile World Congress will take place in Barcelona this month. It’s a focus for the mobile and wireless industry, both as a launch pad for new products and as a key discussion forum for shaping future technologies and Metaboards would like to invite you to experience our smart wireless charging solution.
We will be showcasing our A3 sized demo that uses Metamaterials technology that enables simultaneous charging of multiple devices over a large surface without the need of alignment whilst routing power in a controlled way to specific areas of the surface.
A great opportunity to join Metaboards as a Research Engineer.
Become part of our dynamic, talented and diverse team and push the boundaries of what is possible with metamaterials technologies.

100 scientists cycling together in the Sochi Olympic Park - what a wonderful way to have fun and build stronger bonds!
Attendees of #metanano2018 participated in a bike ride simultaneously with the ITMO's bike ride with rector 9.0.
Among the participants was Prof. Andre Geim from the University of Manchester, a 2010 Nobel Prize winner in physics.
It was an honour and an incredible pleasure to be part of this initiative. Bravo!
Adler, Sochi, what a magic place to visit! Even the heavy rain, floods and storm cannot spoil the joy of being here. In any case, now I know the logic behind the layout of Sochi's coat of arms.
I am happy to talk at METANANO 2018.
METANANO is an annual international conference on metamaterials and nanophotonics and covers all aspects of metamaterials from quantum phenomena and nanophotonics to MRI and microwave applications.
I am glad to see my good friends, colleagues and fellow-scientists and am thrilled to see new faces.
If you attending, please come and say hello!
Our newest paper explains the meaning of Fano features observed in near-field experiments on dielectric resonators
Yet another output of our fruitful collaboration - this paper will be useful for anyone performing near-field experiments on dielectric resonators near conductive surfaces, in particular, in experiments using aperture probes. We explain the polarity of the Fano-profiles observed in the near-field electric field spectra recorded at frequencies close to the frequencies of magnetic dipole resonances of dielectric resonators.
Summary: Fano resonances are observed in the near‐field electric‐field spectra of dielectric particles sustaining magnetic multipole resonances and located near a conductive surface (reflector). This paper proves, theoretically and experimentally, that these Fano resonances originate from the particles' interaction with the standing wave formed near the reflector; and that their polarity is defined by the relative positions of the resonant particle, the observation points, and the reflector.

Inspiration in the air!
I was honoured to present a talk at the inaugural and largest wireless power event in the world, Wireless Power Week (WPW). It combined two topical conferences, IEEE MTT-S Wireless Power Transfer Conference, IEEE PELS Workshop on Emerging Technologies: Wireless Power (WoW) , and Wireless Power Congress of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC).
Bringing together academic science and industrial research is crucial for the development of wireless power.
