|William Borrows||Acoustic and Fluid-dynamical Metamaterials||New materials and structures that control the propagation of acoustic radiation||Steve Hepplestone||David Horsell|
|James Capers||Microwave Metamaterials||Exploring the space of electromagnetic materials, with applications to antenna design||Simon Horsley||Alastair Hibbins|
|Josh Glasbey||Microwave Metamaterials||Manipulating the Coupling and Scattering between Surface Waves and Plane
Waves on Metasurfaces and at their Discontinuities
|Alastair Hibbins||Roy Sambles||Richard Craster (Imperial College London)|
|James Laurenson||Optical, Infra-red and THz Photonics and Plasmonics||To Model and Manipulate Material Scatter Effects to Control the Propagation of Electromagnetic Radiation||Jacopo Bertolotti||Simon Horsley|
|Joe Pitfield||Quantum Metamaterials||The Search for New Materials: Using Quantum Mechanics and Theoretical Modelling to Predict New Material Structures and Phases in Constrained Systems||Steven Hepplestone||Misha Portnoi|
|Leanne Stanfield||Acoustic and Fluid-dynamical Metamaterials||Antenna efficiency and match manipulation using metamaterials||Alastair Hibbins||Roy Sambles|
Many members of staff and their fellow students joined them for an all CDT Get Together:
