This Special Topic presents the most recent and advanced research on acoustic/elastic metamaterials and metasurfaces and their applications. The theoretical, numerical, and experimental research and analyses on these artificial materials, as well as the demonstration of their performances and potential applications, will be solicited, with the aim to inspire readers to generate new ideas and to broaden the understanding of this exciting and relevant topic.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Physical acoustics of metamaterials
- Topological effects in acoustics
- Nonlinear and reconfigurable acoustic metamaterials
- Active acoustic metamaterials
- Acoustic metamaterials displaying nonreciprocal behavior

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance: to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in contemporary applied physics. Material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editorial Team of Journal of Applied Physics will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts will publish immediately upon acceptance.
