About MTI

Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (MTI) is a smart materials and photonics company that is changing the way we use, interact, and benefit from light. Through applied physics and intelligent design, we are pioneering a new class of multifunctional materials—called metamaterials— which have engineered properties that go beyond what is found in nature. 

MTI is a developer of smart materials specializing in metamaterials, nanofabrication and computational electromagnetics. We design and produce highly functional products that master and manipulate light. We apply this technology to revolutionize everything from solar solutions to aircraft safety to wearable tech.

Our mission is to master light through disruptive technology and advanced science so we can improve life on earth. With our in-house design, access to world-class nanocomposite research, and nanofabrication expertise, we are able to develop a wide array of metamaterial applications that encompass several industries including aerospace and defense, healthcare, energy, education, and cleantech. MTI’s quality management system is ISO 9001:2015 certified. MTI is a privately held company that has a growing intellectual property portfolio with 27 patent families (17 granted).

The company was established in London, England in 2010 and moved its head office to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in 2011.  MTI is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia and has offices in London, England and Pleasanton, California.

Light is one of the most fundamental and important resources on our planet. But how much do we really know about light? And are we using it to its full potential?

At MTI, we believe that when it comes to light, it’s time to step out of the dark. As a smart materials and photonics company, our team of scientists are actively harnessing the power of light—making new discoveries and building amazing opportunities which will change the way we benefit from light.

With research and development of smart  materials, we finally have the ability to control and use light like never before.  

 Our new proprietary platform technology is capable of manipulating light in three ways: Blocking LightEnhancing Light and Absorbing Light.



We are dedicated to the highest level of scientific excellence. As a company founded by scientists, innovation is essential and we always want to bridge the gap between the theoretical and the possible.


We are proud of our employees and strive to attract and recruit the finest people from around the world. We are building our company from within by promoting and rewarding people based on their performance and achievements.


We demonstrate a commitment to integrity and ethics in our research and product development by finding solutions to real-world problems.  We are honest and straightforward with each other and we always try to do the right thing.
