One example of the course delivered on-demandby EUPROMETA is:

Title: Fundamentals and applications of microwave metamaterials
Place: European Patent Office, Rijswijk, The Netherlands
Date: 19.04.2013
Organizer: C. Rockstuhl, U. Jena
Prof. Filiberto Bilotti, "Roma Tre" University, Italy
Prof. Sergei Tretyakov, Aalto University, Finland


Lecture 1 (Prof. Sergei Tretyakov, Aalto University, Finland)
Fundamentals of metamaterials
- Rationale (engineering and controlling electromagnetic properties of materials)
- Definitions (classification of metamaterials, notion of metasurfaces, comparison with band-gap structures and photonic crystals)
- Physical characteristics of metamaterials (material parameters, resonant response, reciprocity, notion of spatial dispersion)
- Application-enabling phenomena in metamaterials (backward waves, negative refraction, surface resonances, full absorption, perfect lensing, enhancement of radiation, beaming, etc.)


Lecture 2 (Prof. Filiberto Bilotti, "Roma Tre" University, Italy)

Metamaterials at work
- Metamaterial transmission lines: basic concepts
- Metamaterial transmission lines: applications in microwave components, antennas, sensors
- Metamaterials and metasurfaces: applications in antennas, cloaking devices, microwave components, imaging systems
