This article describes an electrorheological (ER) fluid based on glycerol-activated titania organic-inorganic hybrid gel particles and silicone oil with high yield strength. Based on a physical picture of a water-activated ER system, glycerol that has a high dielectric constant and boiling point is in situ prepared in the amorphous titania gel during the(More)
We present the design for a hexagonal cell made of quasi-periodic dendritic arranged collections of plasmonic metallic wires that may exhibit a resonant magnetic collective response. When such quasi-periodic dendritic cells are etched on a host medium, they may provide metamaterials with negative effective permeability. We also show that a clear point image(More)
To enhance electrorheological (ER) activity by improving interfacial polarization, we prepared a new mesoporous Cr-doped TiO2 ER material by a copolymer-templated sol-gel method. The material was characterized by differential scanning calorimeter and thermogravimetric (DSC-TG) analysis, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD),(More)
The Doppler effect refers to the change in frequency of a wave source as a consequence of the relative motion between the source and an observer. Veselago theoretically predicted that materials with negative refractions can induce inverse Doppler effects. With the development of metamaterials, inverse Doppler effects have been extensively investigated.(More)
Slowing down or even stopping light is the first task to realising optical information transmission and storage. Theoretical studies have revealed that metamaterials can slow down or even stop light; however, the difficulty of preparing metamaterials that operate in visible light hinders progress in the research of slowing or stopping light.
