Prof. CHAN Che Ting, the IAS Executive Director and Chair Professor of Physics at HKUST, introduces on the research activities worldwide aiming at creating a new generation of materials and structures. Such advanced materials can manipulate light and sound, and realize superior wave manipulation functionalities beyond the limit of normal materials. With such unique properties, these “wave functional materials” can make what seems to be impossible possible and have the potential to bring future technology closer to reality.
