Brief description This project aims to investigate non-volatile tuneable terahertz (THz) metamaterials, based on the exploitation of phase change materials. Tuneable metamaterial-based THz devices, such as filters and modulators, could generate significant downstream intellectual property for wireless applications. This fills a critical need to meet the increasing demand for greater bandwidth between desktop devices. Expected outcomes include understanding the interaction between THz signals and phase change materials, tuneable metamaterials, and devices that can steer and modulate THz signals with unprecedented agility and compactness, enabling future high-bandwidth Bluetooth-like data transfer.
