Article
In past years, various cloaks have attracted the attention of many scientists but they usually remain confined to a single function. Cloaks combining multiple functions, however, are desirable. In this paper, we design thermoelastic cloaks with dual functionality by the coordinate transformation technique. The transformation of the thermoelastic wa...

Three-dimensional direct laser writing technology enables one to print polymer microstructures whose size varies from a few hundred nanometers to a few millimeters. It has been shown that, by tuning the laser power during writing, one can adjust continuously the optical and elastic properties with the same base material. This process is referred to...

Periodic truss-lattice materials, especially when combined with current additive manufacturing techniques, are attracting attention in lightweight material engineering. As a member of the elementary cubic truss family, the simple-cubic truss lattice possesses the highest stiffness and strength along the principal directions and plays an important r...

Stepper motors and actuators are among the main constituents of control motion devices. They are complex multibody systems with rather large overall volume due to their multifunctional parts and elaborate technological assembly processes. Miniaturization of individual parts is still posing assembly problems. In this paper, a single‐step lithography...

The topological backscattering immunity of waves guided along a domain wall is associated with symmetry protection in valley-Hall and quantum-Hall phononic crystal waveguides. This desirable property results from a topological transition at a Dirac point of the 2D crystal, leading to the opening of an initially closed band gap but to a limited avai...

Previously, rotons were observed in correlated quantum systems at low temperatures, including superfluid helium and Bose-Einstein condensates. Here, following a recent theoretical proposal, we report the direct experimental observation of roton-like dispersion relations in two different three-dimensional metamaterials under ambient conditions. One...
Article
A two-dimensional cross-like phoxonic crystal (PxC) model is proposed, which exhibits simultaneously large complete photonic crystal (PtC) and phononic crystal (PnC) bandgaps. The most salient trait of the structure is the wide range of geometrical parameters compatible with large complete bandgaps. After geometrical optimization, photonic and phon...

Metamaterials have attracted wide scientific interest to break fundamental bounds on materials properties. Recently, the field has been extending to coupled physical phenomena where one physics acts as the driving force for another. Stimuli-responsive or 4D metamaterials have been demonstrated for thermo-elasticity, magneto-optics or piezo-electric...
Article
We investigate two-dimensional phononic metaplates consisting of a periodic array of cups on a thin epoxy plate that is perforated with periodic cross holes. The cups are individually filled with water or remain empty, in view of creating reconfigurable phononic waveguides. Phononic band gaps exist for empty or filled epoxy cups, leading to wavegui...

We demonstrate experimentally the manipulation of Lamb waves guided along reconfigurable phononic circuits created by defects composed of threaded rods held with nuts in a perforated solid phononic crystal slab. Adjusting the free length of the rod, the resonant frequency of the defect can be tuned, without any change in the supporting phononic cry...

Strongly confined waveguiding is one of the main applications of phononic crystals that can be achieved at any frequency and scale. Phononic crystal waveguides replace the cladding of classical homogeneous waveguides by a crystal possessing a complete phononic bandgap. We review the different material systems used to implement phononic crystal wave...
Article
The propagation of acoustic or elastic waves in artificial crystals, including the case of phononic and sonic crystals, is inherently anisotropic. As is known from the theory of periodic composites, anisotropy is directly dictated by the space group of the unit cell of the crystal and the rank of the elastic tensor. Here, we examine effective veloc...
Article
We use square and rectangular phononic crystals to create experimental realizations of complex topological phononic circuits. The exotic topological transport observed is wholly reliant upon the underlying structure that must belong to either a square or rectangular lattice system and not to any hexagonal-based structure. The phononic system we use...

Metamaterial thermal energy devices obtained from transformation optics have recently attracted wide attention due to their vast potential in energy storage, thermal harvesting or heat manipulation. However, these devices usually require inhomogeneous and extreme material parameters which are difficult to realize in large-scale applications. Here,...

The propagation of waves in fluid-saturated porous periodic structures is significantly affected by the interface condition between adjacent layers. We consider in this paper the partial-open pore interface condition between adjacent layers in a one-dimensional fluid-saturated porous phononic crystal. A transfer matrix method is devised to obtain b...

Acoustic metasurfaces can reshape a reflected wavefront rather arbitrarily, despite being much thinner than the wavelength, thus allowing on-demand wavefront modulation in a variety of applications. Recent passive metasurfaces, however, have suffered from bandwidth limitations, thus restricting their range of operation. In this work, we propose the...
Article
In phononic crystals composed of solid inclusions distributed periodically in a fluid matrix, Bloch waves are a superposition of acoustic and elastic waves coupled at the boundaries of inclusions. Resonances internal to the unit cell and localized on the solid inclusions, when present, populate the phononic band structure with additional hybridizat...

Phononic coupled-resonator waveguide cavities are formed by a finite chain of defects in a complete bandgap phononic crystal slab. The sample is machined in a fused silica plate by femtosecond printing to form an array of cross-shape holes. The collective resonance of the phononic cavities, in the Megahertz frequency range, are excited by a piezoel...

Wave propagation in a two-dimensional periodic fluid-saturated porous metamaterial (FSPM) is investigated. The constitutive relation considered for fluid-saturated porous materials is based on Biot's homogeneization theory. Such media generally support two shear and two longitudinal elastic waves. Anisotropic wave propagation results both from anis...

Cork is a natural amorphous material with near-zero Poisson's ratio that is ubiquitously used for sealing glass bottles. It is an anisotropic, transversally isotropic, composite that can hardly be scaled down. Here, we propose a new class of isotropic and reusable cork-like metamaterial that is designed from an hybrid truss-lattice material to show...

Absorbing mechanical shocks and vibration energy is crucial in industrial, domestic and medical applications. Very often, systems (such as hydraulic cylinders) or structures (such as helmets) are used to achieve energy absorption or protection from impacts or periodic vibrations. In this respect, mechanical metamaterials have received much attentio...

Fluid-saturated porous metamaterials described following Biot's theory support two longitudinal elastic waves. The phase velocity and attenuation of these waves depend nonlinearly on porosity and viscosity of the fluid. Furthermore, when two fluid-saturated porous metamaterials are arranged to form a periodic composite, different band gaps are open...

We explore the cloaking of a complex shape by either the neutral inclusion or the transformation thermodynamics (TT) methods. Thin cloaks are built and the heat cloaking efficiency is investigated for both the steady-state and the transient regimes. We show that the neutral inclusion cloak is more efficient in both regimes, though it has the drawba...

Locally resonant sonic crystals can support band gaps at low frequencies defined by resonances internal to the unit cell. Band gap frequencies are dictated by the choice of resonators and their interaction with the medium supporting acoustic wave propagation. We show that locally resonant band gaps can be tuned by engineering the dispersion of the...

Waveguiding in a phononic crystal (PC) can be achieved along either linear line defects or a sequence of cavities, for frequencies belonging to a complete bandgap. When waves are coupled inside a PC waveguide, modulations in the frequency transmission are generally observed, leading to the formation of a channeled spectrum. We show that the channel...

We introduce a stochastic excitation method for calculating the dispersion relation for waves propagating in periodic media or along waveguides and subject to material loss or radiation damping. Instead of looking for an explicit or implicit functional relation between frequency ω and wave number k, as is usually done, we consider a mapping of the...

Brillouin light scattering describes the diffraction of light waves by acoustic phonons, originating from random thermal fluctuations inside a transparent body, or by coherent acoustic waves, generated by a transducer or from the interference of two frequency-detuned optical waves. In experiments with optical fibers, it is generally found that the...

We model the generation of coherent acoustic beams in a homogeneous solid from the interference of two oppositely propagating, detuned optical laser beams. This configuration is reciprocal to Brillouin light scattering in the backward interaction arrangement. Generation of a confined ultrasound beam is predicted, close to the Brillouin frequency. O...

A silicon-based cross-like holey phononic crystal (PnC) strip is proposed for the control of elastic waves in the field of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). The goal is to obtain a broad band gap at low frequencies with a lightweight structure. In this respect, the effects of varying the in-plane and the out-of-plane geometry parameters are...

A phononic crystal with an ultra-wide band gap is proposed, whose unit cell consists of a cross-like concave hole in the center and four square convex holes at the corners. The dispersion relations, modal kinetic energy ratio, and eigenmodes at edges of the band gaps are investigated by using the finite element method. The influence of the geometri...

Acousto-optical modulators usually rely on coherent diffraction of light by a moving acoustic wave, leading to bulky devices with a long interaction length. We propose a subwavelength acousto-optical structure that instead relies on a double resonance to achieve strong modulation at near-infrared wavelengths. A periodic array of metal ridges on a p...

Reconfigurable phononic circuits can be created by the selective fluid filling of holes in a solid phononic crystal. For frequencies within a complete band gap of the bare phononic crystal, the filled holes become cavities that sustain acoustoelastic defect modes. Those cavities couple evanescently with a strength that depends on their separation....
