Metamagnetics is revolutionizing wireless and microwave system design and deployment. We’ve developed next-generation materials and have perfected the integration of them into the RF and microwave components you need to overcome front-end power and noise interference challenges like never before. Our products are designed to enhance the performance and effectiveness of mission-critical radar, communication and power supply systems, and our #1 goal is to help you gain the efficiency and performance you need, while also achieving the size, weight and power, and the total cost (SWaP-C) of your current and future security, surveillance and communication systems.
All of our materials and devices are manufactured domestically for value-added security.
Our core team includes engineers and scientists with extensive knowledge of electromagnetism, material science, and quantum physics — specifically as these disciplines relate to RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave signal transmission and processing. This knowledge has allowed us to infuse innovation into a mature field of high frequency magnetics.
U.S.-based and veteran-owned, Metamagnetics formed in 2009 after a spinout from the Northeastern University Center for Microwave Magnetic Materials and Integrated Circuits (CM3IC). We're now a fully operational designer/manufacturer and worldwide supplier of microwave and millimeter-wave components based on advanced materials, metamaterials, and multiferroics. Our extensive industry experience includes working with the Navy, Army, Air Force, DARPA, and most major U.S. defense prime OEM contractors.
Our mission is to optimize existing systems and components or enable entirely new ones by replacing out-of-date, inefficient devices and materials with new state-of-the-art concepts and compositions. Our team has routinely demonstrated that utilizing the correct materials within a RF/microwave signal chain can directly and dramatically impact the power and noise generation/handling capabilities of a system, and enable microwave system designers to make a true “quantum leap” into the future.
Vince Harris founded Metamagnetics, Inc. in 2009 upon innovations in rf materials and devices developed in part at Northeastern’s Center for Microwave Magnetic Materials and Integrated Circuits (CM3IC) – a Center established in 2004 that is internationally renowned for its advancements in technologies related to magnetoceramics and their applications in sensing, communications, and radar. He presently holds the position of Metamagnetics’ Chairman of the Board of Directors.
He has had a distinguished career as an engineer, scientist, inventor, educator and entrepreneur for nearly 30 years. He holds positions of University Distinguished Professor, William Lincoln Smith Chair Professor, and Director of the CM3IC at Northeastern University (Boston, MA USA). Prior to holding these positions, he was a member of the technical staff, Head of the Complex Materials Section, and Head of the Materials Physics Branch at the Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, DC).
His professional preparation includes the Ph.D. (NEU-EE), M.Sc. (NEU-ME, MSE), M.Sc. (U. Md.-Eng. Mgt.), M.Eng. (U. Penn.-Exec. Tech. Mgt.), and B.Sc. (NEU-ME) degrees.
Among his international prizes and awards, Harris was recipient of the Minerals, Metals and Materials (TMS) Society Distinguished Scientist Award (2016), the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Lee Hsun Research Award for Seminal Contributions to Materials Science (2013), and IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (2007). He has been elevated to Fellow of the AAAS, IEEE, American Physical Society, Institute of Engineering and Technology (GB), Institute of Physics (GB), and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). In 2016, Harris was named a Fulbright Scholar.
He routinely serves as an expert consultant to the NAS/NAE, Department of Defense, DARPA, Department of Energy, NIST, National Science Foundation, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and others, in areas of national and international science, technology, and commerce.
Harris’ proudest accomplishment is in the training of more than fifty engineering and entrepreneurial professionals that have become leaders in the S&T community – some of whom enable Metamagnetics to achieve its success.
Vincent Harris is a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard.
