RIT researcher develops new solar sailing technology for NASA - RIT News
Uh, based on the vectors, this is only going to work really well for an SSO orbit riding the terminator line since you need the solar angle to be normal to the plane of the sail and keep the sail edge-on to the orbital vector...

Phys. Rev. X 4, 041033 (2014) - Anisotropic Complementary Acoustic Metamaterial for Canceling out Aberrating Layers
This suggest the possibility of putting a helmet on the head of a person to ultrasound the inside of a skull, which is currently not possible. Which would avoid needing MRI/CT scanning.

[1802.06362] Experimental demonstration of three-dimensional broadband underwater acoustic carpet cloak
The military usefulness is limited for submarine surface coatings, but as a hangar for UUV's that can hide in plain sight, or to cover/shield an underwater cable tap, this has some applications...

Echodyne | Metamaterials-Based Radar Technology
Using metamaterials, they've built up sub-half wavelength antenna arrays for a phased array radar at small scale, with spacing so small that they don't need expensive/heavy/powerful phase shifters to beam steer.

NASA - OCCAMS: Optically Controlled and Corrected Active Meta-material Space Structures
Wow, using photonic muscles embedded in a deployable thin film mirror, using a raster scanning laser to tweak the mirror as an active optical correction primary aperture mirror by using the muscles to deform the mirror. But, the concept suspiciously looks similar to a stealth radar deflection cone for spysats patented by Teledyne Ryan and allegedly used on Misty 1/2 and NROL-15.

Nanoscale Research Letters | Full text | Tailoring photonic metamaterial resonances for thermal radiation
This seems to use the same kind of tricks as those luminescent solar concentrator plates, that internally reflect captured light and convert the frequency internally to retransmit to edge PV modules. Just shifting down to IR. The interesting bit is the prevention of reradiation through the top surface, which provides the potential for solar thermal power generation without concentrating mirrors using not well aligned surfaces of panels manufactured using chip fabrication techniques.
