Safer, lower-weight and more fuel-efficient aircraft will be realized in the future thanks to advanced materials, sensors and electronics. While composites already are bringing new structural capabilities to aerospace, new nanocomposite materials promise extraordinary optical, electronic and acoustic properties. Known as “metamaterials,” these new nano-engineered substances have unique properties not found in naturally occurring materials. These include bending light in entirely ...
