VISOSURF - Signalgenerix

A Hardware Platform for Software-driven Functional Metasurfaces (VISOSURF)

Project Overview 

VISORSURF aims to develop a hardware platform, the HyperSurface, whose electromagnetic behavior can be defined programmatically. The key-enablers are the metasurfaces, artificial materials whose electromagnetic properties depend on their internal structure. HyperSurfaces merge metamaterials with a network of miniaturized, custom electronic controllers, the nanonetwork. The nanonetwork receives external programmatic commands and alters the metasurface structure, yielding a desired electromagnetic behavior for the HyperSurface.
