Material-by-Design for Synthesis, Modeling, and Simulation of Innovative Systems and Devises

Dr Giacomo OLIVERI
University of Trento - DISI

Several new devices and architectures have been proposed in the last decade to exploit the unique features of
innovative artificially-engineered materials (such as metamaterials, nanomaterials, biomaterials) with
important applications in science and engineering.
In such a framework, a new set of techniques belonging to the Material-by-Design (MbD) framework [1]-[5] have
been recently introduced to synthesize innovative devices comprising task-oriented artificial materials.
MbD is an instance of the System-by-Design paradigm [6][7] defined in short as “How to deal with complexity”.
More specifically, MbD considers the problem of designing artificial-material enhanced-devices from a completely
new perspective, that is "The application-oriented synthesis of advanced systems comprising artificial materials
whose constituent properties are driven by the device functional requirements".
The aim of this seminar will be to review the fundamentals, features, and potentialities of the MbD paradigm,
as well as to illustrate selected state-of-the-art applications of this design framework in sensing and
communications scenarios.

This work has been partially supported by the “Jean d’Alembert” Scholarship Program (2016-2017) funded by the
IDEX Université Paris Saclay (France).
