META is a smart materials and photonics company that is changing the way we use, interact, and benefit from light. Through applied physics and intelligent design, it is pioneering a new class of multifunctional materials— called metamaterials— which have engineered properties that go beyond what is found in nature. META’s new patented platform technology uses a variety of smart materials that are capable of dramatically changing how light can be altered and harnessed. The company has created smart material products made from precisely designed nanostructures that affect light in different way—to block, absorb, and enhance light. META specializes in metamaterial research, nanofabrication, and computational electromagnetics; bridging the gap between the theoretical and the possible.

META is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia and has offices in London, England and Pleasanton, California.
