Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (MTI) is a smart materials and photonics company that is changing the way we use, interact and benefit from light. The company specializes in metamaterial research, nanofabrication, and computational electromagnetic; bridging the gap between the theoretical and the possible. Through applied physics and intelligent design, it has developed a new platform technology using a variety of smart materials that are capable of dramatically changing how light can be altered and harnessed. This new patented technology can block light, absorb light and enhance light. MTI has been recognized for its metaAIR™ optical filter that can provide laser protection and has been working in partnership with Airbus since 2014 to provide a solution for commercial aviation. MTI is able to develop a wide array of metamaterial applications that encompass several industries including aerospace and defense, healthcare, energy, education, and clean-tech.
Its new product NanoWeb®, is an advanced transparent metal mesh conductor which is truly invisible to the human eye. This enables it to be integrated into windows, windshields, goggles, visors and display glass. It offers a superior alternative to Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), Silver Nanowire (AgNW), graphene and carbon nanotube among other ITO-alternative technologies.
The company is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia and has offices in London, England and Pleasanton, California.
