Metamaterials is a young subject born in the 21st century. It is concerned with artificial materials which can have electrical and magnetic properties difficult or impossible to find in nature. The building blocks in most cases are resonant elements much smaller than the wavelength of the electromagnetic wave. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of research in this field at a level that should appeal to final year undergraduates in physics or in electrical and electronic engineering. The mathematics is kept at a minimum; the aim is to explain the physics in simple terms and enumerate the major advances. It can be profitably read by graduate and post-graduate students in order to find out what has been done in the field outside their speciality, and by experts who may gain new insight about the inter-relationship of the physical phenomena involved.

She was a visiting scientist at the University of Campinas, Brazil in 1996 and 1998. In 2000 she was awarded the Emmy Noether Fellowship from the German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). She spent the first leg of the Fellowship, 2000-2002 at the University of Oxford. After further six months at Imperial College, London she returned to the University of Osnabruck where she built up a research group working on Metamaterials. Her main research areas apart from Metamaterials have been amorphous semiconductors, photorefractive materials and antennas. She published over 50 research papers. She and was awarded the Hertha-Sponer Prize 2006 of the German Physical Society.
