CUNY, UNCC, Clarkson and WCU have numerous distinguished professors and expert metamaterials, materials, and fabrication process researchers who will be Project PIs and researchers for CfM projects. This team of researchers is well balanced among the technical foci of the CfM: Metamaterials Theory (MT), Materials and Structures Development (MSD), and Fabrication Process Development (FPD).
