Bruker FTIR takes Part in the Revolution of Meta-Material

Introduction

WIKIPEDIA dictionary defined the so-called meta-materials as artificial materials engineered to have properties that may not be found in nature. They are assemblies of multiple individual elements fashioned from conventional microscopic materials such as metals or plastics, but usually arranged in pre-designed periodic patterns. During the last two decades, many scientists in different fields have donated a lot of effort to tailor the novel properties of meta-materials, in particular the optical ones. The most specific feature of meta-material is the designable optical response at a certain frequency range. Different sub-wavelength structures produce various optical effects appearing at the range from several THz (far-infrared) to several eV (visible and UV). Therefore, a flexible spectrometer covering wide spectral range is very necessary for meta-material research.
