Experts Convene to Tackle American Metamaterials Manufacturing

MForesight partnered with Dr. Chris Spadaccini from Lawrence Livermore National Labs to lead a workshop exploring the challenges and opportunities for metamaterials manufacturing in the United States. Approximately 40 experts from industry, academia, federal labs, and government gathered in Washington, DC on June 20 to develop recommendations for public and private stakeholders in the areas of research and development priorities, technology implementation challenges, and related policies.

Experts generated ideas in breakout sessions throughout the day.
  • Research and development of measurement and real-time process control for high-speed production of complex chemistries and geometries.
  • Shared manufacturing facilities and accelerated knowledge exchange between researchers, metamaterials manufacturers, and end users to accelerate the development and testing of metamaterials for targeted applications.
Experts collaborate to develop recommendations to accelerate the realization of scalable metamaterials.
