Laser engraving offers sound advantages for the production of acoustic metamaterials

Researchers at the University of Missouri recently released a paper detailing the creation of a new acoustic metamaterial with negative index of refraction. They fabricated the material by laser-engraving a sheet of steel with a millimeter-scale pattern that produced negative effective mass densi...
