All the PhonoMeta kids happy now, daddy can relax! 🥴

The acoustic analogy of a Majorana bound state turned out to be a really good idea! In November last year we got this great cover story in Phys. Rev. Lett. Now, we showed that its binding mechanism constitutes a topological pump, which Wiley’s Advanced Quantum Technology journal selected as the September issue cover story! Great job Penglin! 👊

Here we have a great paper published today in the prestigious journal Adv. Funct. Mater. with impact factor 16.8 OMG! Usually, if you have more than 30 equations in your paper, you should consider a more specialized and less general journal, but we tried!
The first author is a special one! In 2005 for my M.Sc thesis he suggested me to look into phononic crystals! I was like, fono whaaat?? And the last author has only an H-index of 245!! 😂😂😂

You haven’t heard of Communications Physics yet? They should be pretty selective just as Nature Communications, just for the physics area. So in this regard, we are very pumped to have the journal’s first ever review out 💪!

Nov 07 2018
Honored to have the first talk at the SAM: Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials – Xàtiva 2018. Many thanks to the organizers👊!

Natalia Lera (UAM) came to visit us to discuss collaboration of mechanical zero-like-modes!

March 15 2018

Visiting the “Organo” (1977) from Eusebio Sempere at Fundación Juan March here in Madrid. We reconfirmed Francisco Meseguer’s measurements from 1995 and found the first band gap at 1670 Hz. We tested it with my mobile phone tone generator!😎🤩

Matthieu Malléjac joined our team for a month. Thanks so much, come back soon!

On my way to Changsha for the Phononics 2017…so looong trip, getting tired!

Bahram seems to be saying: “Who else should be awarded the Bloch medal??” Congrats Jose, well deserved!

My turn for my keynote presentation after my all time hero Xiang Zhang….not getting better! 😀

Jet lagged …ZZzzzZZZzzz…but chairing this session!

Brother from another mother: Bin Liang!

From a chat between Abdelkrim Khelif and yours truly: J. C. : “Nowadays the youngsters do not know the pioneers like Djafari-Rouhani, Dobrzynski, and Kushwaha!” A. K.: “That’s right, they only know Comsol…”
