Focus & Special Sessions

Session Title

SC2: Twist-controlled Electromagnetic, Acoustic and Thermal Phenomena

Session Organizers

  • Qingdong Ou


    Monash University

  • Guangwei Hu


    Nanyang Technological University

Session Information

The twisted stacking of structured or natural materials can induce exotic wave-matter and field-matter interactions, with exciting new physics and applications. This session is focused on emerging twist-induced electromagnetic, acoustic, and thermal physics as well as phenomena, in the system of metamaterials/metasurfaces, photonic/phononic crystals, topological structures, 2D materials, van der Waals heterostructures and many others.
