The use of electromagnetic waves and information has become crucial to the modern world. This has led to the development of intelligent metasurfaces that do not require manual manipulation to control wave-information-matter interactions. To this end, a group of researchers decided to investigate the development of intelligent metasurfaces with a view to the future. They claim that intelligent metasurfaces can greatly benefit the development of 6G wireless communications, green IoT, and digital twinning.
According to the researchers, the development of intelligent metasurfaces has improved human insight into several key laws, adding that they have led to the development of many new devices and systems, such as cloaking, tunnelling, and holograms.
In a statement, intelligent metasurfaces can learn, make decisions, self-programming, and continue to learn throughout their''lifetime''. There are a number of important issues to be addressed in the future, according to the researchers.
Professor Lianlin Li of Peking University and Professor Tie Jun Cui of Southeast University led the study. Their research has been published in eLight.
Intelligent metasurfaces have three crucial components: digitalization, programmability, and intelligence. Digitalisation allows the metasurface to encode, decode, and store digital information. With programmability, the metasurface can realize distinct functions with one physical entity. Without human supervision, the metasurface may make decisions, self-program, and perform successive tasks.
The researchers said that the wireless signals that exist in our lives could be crucial to the field''s future development. Deep learning has proven extraordinarily useful in nearly every field of science and engineering. Deep learning will certainly lead to comprehensive and active research directions.
