Meta Materials Inc. (META®) is an early-stage company that has developed multiple technologies for designing and manufacturing metamaterials. These are finely patterned structures in either 2D or 3D that enable the manipulation of light and energy to achieve properties not seen in nature. Metamaterials have multiple potential applications, including eyewear, communications, and transparent conductors. IDTechEx caught up with Rob Stone, Vice President of Corporate Development and Communications, to learn more about the company and especially its rolling mask lithography (RML) technology.
