Paper illustrates how researchers can boost flexural wave sensing

Piezoelectric sensors are used widely in a vast array of devices important to our everyday lives. A University of Missouri College of Engineering research team just developed a way to enhance their sensing capabilities multifold.

Guoliang Huang, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, led an MU research team that published “Enhanced flexural wave sensing by adaptive gradient-index metamaterials” in Scientific Reports. The paper illustrates how the team developed active metamaterials to boost the elastic wave signals in large structures.
