The purpose of these pages is to provide you with an introduction to the Electromagnetic Materials Design and Characterization Group at Iowa State University. The image above left (Bessel functions of the first kind) represents our strong foundation in electromagnetic theory, which we use to guide both materials design for particular applications, and rigorous interpretation of experimental measurement for materials characterization. Our logo, above right, represents our multiple, complementary, strands in research for materials design and characterization. For example, the dipolar sphere may represent one of many particles in a mixture forming a composite material for manipulation of light. On the other hand, it may represent a void or inclusion that is a defect in a structural material. These and other problems are of interest to the EMDC group.
