Metamaterials: Reversibly Stretchable and Tunable Terahertz Metamaterials with Wrinkled Layouts (Adv. Mater. 26/2012)
When metamaterials are arranged in a stretchable platform, their practical applications (e.g., reconfigurable optoelectronic devices and biological sensors) can be greatly extended. B. Min and co-workers take inspiration from the wrinkled structures of various bio-organisms to develop a generic strategy for reversibly stretchable metamaterials. The structural integrities of the wrinkled THz metamaterials described on page 3491 remain intact after repeated stretching/relaxing, and the wrinkled metamaterial makes a mechanically reversible transition between artificial homogeneous and inhomogeneous broadenings.
