Introducing our speaker Nicolò Maccaferri

Today we are very happy to present to you our next speaker Nicolò Maccaferri. His talk has the title: Metamaterials matter: new possibilities with the smart material of the future”.

What do Harry Potter, a cathedral and an earthquake have in common? To answer this question, we will start a journey in the magic world of metamaterials, which are special type of materials displaying novel and unexpected properties never observed in nature.

Nicolò is a Researcher at the University of Luxembourg where he explores how light and matter interact between each other on size scales one million times smaller than our cells, and on temporal scales one thousand times smaller than a second.
