Novel electroactive metamaterials working in the terahertz (THz) and microwave frequency ranges are demonstrated utilizing π-conjugated polymer actuators. Metamaterials are artificial composite materials based on subwavelength resonant elements called "meta-atoms." The resonant character of meta-atoms typically restricts their operating frequency to a narrow range, therefore it is crucial to make them tunable in order to develop practical devices. A promising tuning scheme is based on changing...[Show more]
