The notion of artificially engineered materials, which has a long history dating back to the late part of the 19th century, gained considerable momentum two decades ago. The excitement associated with such metamaterials and the structures they have inspired has not waned since then. Rather, it has substantially grown. Metamaterial-inspired structures continue to challenge our imagination and our physics and engineering foundations. They are impacting wave-matter interactions across many frequencies and even across diverse fields of science and technology. They are now enabling many commercial opportunities. It is anticipated that they will provide access to yet new physical phenomena and will facilitate many novel future applications.
