A metamaterial (MM) is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in naturally occurring materials. MMs elements are fashioned from composite materials such as metals and dielectrics. The constitutive materials are usually arranged in repeating patterns, at scales that are smaller than the wavelengths of the phenomena they influence.
The primary goal of this GIDRM workshop on MMs in Magnetic Resonance is to bring together the communities of chemists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists, biologists, physicians to explore this rapidly expanding field. The workshop will provide a theoretical introduction to MMs. A review of experimental methods suitable to assemble and test MMs based on bulk or surface structures will be provided. It will also be considered how to analyse the dependence of MMs properties on the operating frequency (magnetic field). The numerical electromagnetic tools suitable for MMs modelling will be reviewed. Given the expanding field of MMs use in Magnetic Resonance, we will present and discuss several practical examples related to improved or potential NMR and MRI features.

Registration is free, but reserved to GIDRM associates with regular payment for 2020 and to new GIDRM associates. New associations to GIDRM will remain valid throughout 2021 and will include free access to all 2021 GIDRM days and school organised in a telematic way.

The registration deadline is 24th November 2020.
