In terms of design, multifunctional requirements are becoming the rule. While previous decades were driven by the development of new materials, this new engineering approach calls for the development of 'tailored materials'. Very often, contradictory requirements cannot be met by a single material. Fortunately, various innovative strategies are possible -associating different materials, playing with materials architectures (such as foams and truss lattices), or developing microstructural gradients. While these strategies open a whole new range of materials and properties, where structural requirements and functional properties can be combined, they also reveal additional challenges. New processes must be implemented. Appropriate constitutive equations must be developed. Interfaces must be engineered. And bioinspired hierarchical structures must be developed and modeled, to name just a few. This book brings together researchers to review recent advances and address the list of challenges. Topics include: basic concepts in architecture materials; cellular and fibrous materials; processing challenges; towards structures and multifunctional materials.

Optical metamaterials and metasurfaces, which are properly designed assembly of man-made building blocks with strong interactions with electromagnetic waves, have emerged as promising candidates to replace natural materials due to extraordinary capabilities in light manipulation. In particular, plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces have shown their potentials in surpassing diffraction limit, manipulating light beams, and enhancing energy conversion by substantially enhancing light-matter interactions through effects of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) or localized surface plasmons (LSPs). Although enormous breakthroughs in plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces have been made in the recent decades, the further development of this field towards practical applications has been limited by the lack of high throughput fabrication and the poor tunability in conventional designs. This dissertation presents the cost-effective nanofabrication, rationale design, numerical modelling, experimental demonstration, and application prototyping of new classes of plasmonic metamaterials and metasurfaces featured by moiré patterns. Firstly, we developed novel techniques based on conventional nanosphere lithography to achieve high-throughput nanofabrication of metamaterials and metasurfaces with three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) moiré configurations. Secondly, we demonstrated multiband moiré metasurfaces with flexible tunability based on plasmonic materials including Au and graphene, which have shown potentials as multifunctional biomedical platforms. Thirdly, we developed moiré chiral metamaterials with ultrathin thickness and precisely tunable chiroptical responses, which have been applied as ultrasensitive sensors to achieve label-free enantiodiscrimination of chiral molecules. Finally, we introduced dynamic tunability in moiré chiral metamaterials through stimuli-responsive manipulation of optical coupling in the metamaterials. The results presented in this dissertation could provide guidance to the development of tunable moiré metamaterials and metasurfaces from design and fabrication to characterization and device implementation, benefiting a range of applications from light manipulation to molecular sensing

Metamaterials represent a new emerging innovative field of research which has shown rapid acceleration over the last couple of years. In this handbook, we present the richness of the field of metamaterials in its widest sense, describing artificial media with sub-wavelength structure for control over wave propagation in four volumes. Volume 1 focuses on the fundamentals of electromagnetic metamaterials in all their richness, including metasurfaces and hyperbolic metamaterials. Volume 2 widens the picture to include elastic, acoustic, and seismic systems, whereas Volume 3 presents nonlinear and active photonic metamaterials. Finally, Volume 4 includes recent progress in the field of nanoplasmonics, used extensively for the tailoring of the unit cell response of photonic metamaterials. In its totality, we hope that this handbook will be useful for a wide spectrum of readers, from students to active researchers in industry, as well as teachers of advanced courses on wave propagation.
