The Metamaterials Modelling and AI-Design Special Interest Group (SIG) covers all aspects of metamaterial modelling. It aims to identify strengths and limitations (as well as how to overcome them) of the different metamaterials models. This should lead to clear guidelines for uses of different modelling approaches.
Inverse design and AI methods are key to discover a new generation of metamaterials with desired properties. It also covers topics such as feasibility of a metamaterial model for translation to manufacture. Naturally, Metamaterials Modelling has close connection to many other SIGs in the network and will work with them through joint events to facilitate learning and new innovative ideas.
