Dr Mihai Caleap
BA, BSc, MSc, PhD(Bordeaux), MInstP, CEng, CPhys
Area of research
Multifunctional Metamaterials & Novel Microstructures
Dr. Caleap’s research interests cover various aspects of wave propagation in heterogeneous complex media (including composite materials and metamaterials); his work encompassing multiple scattering and array imaging, both with a focus on applications in Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE).
Current activity involves:
- Assembly of reconfigurable colloidal crystals and micro-particle super-lattices due to a synergy of fundamental nanoscale forces (e.g. acoustic & magnetic radiation forces)
- Acoustic, elastodynamic and electrodynamic metamaterials
- Particle manipulation with ultrasound
- Non-destructive evaluation and guided waves
- Wave propagation in heterogeneous media
- Linear and non-linear ultrasonics
- Super-resolution imaging
- Acoustic quasicrystals
Dr. Mihai Caleap obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2009 from the Physical Acoustics Group at the University of Bordeaux, France and subsequently briefly worked there as a Teaching and Research Assistant. He was appointed to a Post-doctoral Research Assistant position in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol in July 2009.
