TEAM-A (Tailored Electromagnetic & Acoustic Materials Accelerator) is a multidisciplinary team of academic and industrial researchers based across the College of Engineeting, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter, and QinetiQ, the multinational defence technology company. The research aims to create materials that have the ability to fully control and manipulate the flow of electromagnetic (e.g radiated heat, light, radiowaves) and acoustic (e.g sound, vibration, shock) energy, and have the potential to enable a large and diverse range of technologies.
