Aalto University

Partner description

Aalto University is where science and art meet technology and business. We shape a sustainable future by making research breakthroughs in and across our disciplines, sparking the game changers of tomorrow and creating novel solutions to major global challenges. Care robots, speech recognition, metamaterials, galaxies near and far away – the School of Electrical Engineering is so much more than electricity and smart power grids, as we study many topics you might not initially associate with the electrical industry. In particular, Theoretical and Applied Electromagnetics of Complex Media research group works on a wide range of topics of electromagnetic theory and its applications, such as metamaterials and metasurfaces, bi-anisotropic materials, plasmonics, electromagnetics of graphene, nonreciprocal materials, scattering and diffraction…

Role in the Project

The main activities of the Aalto University team will be on time-space modulated structures and components, including tasks from definition of appropriate analytical methods able to describe the electromagnetic behaviour of time-modulated and shape-varying structures and components to design of 4D metadevices.
