Phononic Metamaterials

Our goal is to design new materials and structures that can control mechanical waves in unprecedented ways. We take a holistic modeling-experimental approach, integrating simple physics-based analytical models, high-fidelity simulations, advanced manufacturing, and experimental wave mechanics. Our current thrusts include:

3D Printed Architected Metamaterials

Current Work Architected metamaterials are materials that obtain their properties not from the parent (bulk) materials but from tailored geometry ...

Multifunctional Lattices

Lattice materials show exotic quasi-static and wave propagation properties by virtue of their geometric configuration and periodicity. These materials have ...

Nonlinear Phononic Materials

Phononic materials are engineered media that can manipulate waves propagating through them due to their synthetic and periodic architecture. However, ...

Stimuli-Responsive Metastructures

Lattice-based metastructures afford a great deal of flexibility in the design of phononic systems because they have many geometric parameters ...
