Metasurfaces (MTS) constitute an emerging technology area that can be employed for realizing highly customizable devices that find EM application in antennas, metamaterials, plasmonics, microwaves. Metatronics (MTX) concerns with the generation of space-time varying, controllable, new materials (often nano-structured) exhibiting unusual EM macroscopic properties and functionalities.  This course is intended to provide the necessary theoretical background and insight on the new MTS technology and its MTX reconfigurability, contextualized with their relevant EM applications.  Relevant classwork will be proposed to strengthen the acquired notions as well.  This course has been organized in a joint initiatives among the
European School of Antennas (ESoA),
H2020 FET-Open Coordination and Support Action “Nanoarchitectronics”
Metamorphose Virtual Institute of Metamaterials

The course is intended for PhD students, Researchers, Scientists and Engineers from both Academic and Industrial world who are willing to enhance their basic and advanced knowledge on MTSs and MTX theory, analysis techniques, implementation and applications.
