Metamaterials collect more energy from ocean waves

Chinese physicists have developed and built a device that concentrates the energy of ocean waves through their interference. The constructed prototypes strengthened the amplitude of water surface oscillations up to three times and practically did not create reflected waves. The prototype for the concentrator was a “lens” made of metamaterial, developed by scientists two years ago. The article is published in Physical Review Letters, briefly about it is reported Physics

Scientists have found a built in the brain system of noise reduction
