Could I ask a question on the Stack Exchange 'electrical engineering' site about designing and creating materials associated with metamorphosis (for example, metamaterials, etc.)?
My wife is a researcher in the realm of metamaterials. She is also an electrical engineer. Every other person in her lab is a physicist. Her adviser is in the EE department, but he has every degree in physics.
My point here is relatively simple, we do not have a strong enough photonics group to easily handle detailed questions in regard to metamaterials. Physics SE is almost guaranteed to have more photonics and optics members, but I am not the one to give that guarantee, please take a shot at asking on their SE.
As an electrical engineer, I have no idea what you mean by metamaterials. Practically speaking, either a material is a material, or it isn't, and most engineers are very practical about such things. Are you talking about phase change materials that go from solid, liquid, gas, plasma, etc. and transform into energy (the most common "non material" thing electronic engineers deal with)?
In other words, I expect you'll have to describe your inquiry a little more before we can help you understand if the electrical engineering Stack Exchange site can help you.
Also, this question might be better fielded on the meta site for Electrical Engineering, rather than the general meta here.
