Professor David R. Smith, Talks and Presentations

Dr. Smith's research has focused primarily on the electromagnetic properties of artificially structured materials. In particular, Dr. Smith has explored the potential of patterned metal structures, which can have electromagnetic or optical properties beyond those found in nature. Dr. Smith's publications include theoretical, computational and experimental studies of artificially structured media, which are now commonly referred to as metamaterials.
