Exploring the Transformative Potential of Electromagnetic Metamaterials

Electromagnetic metamaterials use subwavelength scale structures to manipulate waves. They could enable compact and lower-cost biometrics in smartphones, ubiquitous high-speed mobile internet and more efficient solar panels, yet commercial adoption is in its infancy.
IDTechEx predicts major growth in the market for optical and RF (radio frequency) metamaterials, to reach a value of US$14.9B by 2034. This webinar will outline the commercial and technological factors behind the emergence of this major market, examining the diverse sectors which it will touch.
Key points covered will include:
  • A brief introduction to RF (radio frequency) and optical metamaterials, highlighting key market opportunities
  • Analysis of the emerging usage of metalenses, one of the most exciting applications of optical metamaterials, with important manufacturing processes potential challenges highlighted
  • Analysis of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS), the most promising applications of RF metamaterials, with discussion on players, technology roadmap, key case studies, etc
  • Adoption roadmaps for optical and RF metamaterials
  • Outlook for the electromagnetic metamaterials market
This webinar shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report, "Metamaterials Markets 2024-2034: Optical and Radio-Frequency".
