Metamaterials can present extraordinary physical properties through reasonable structural design that natural materials do not have. However, most metamaterials are designed by manual trial and error or numerical optimization, which is time-consuming and laborious and needs better structural diversity. Therefore, we plan to conduct metamaterial intelligent design based on generative AI. Firstly, the metamaterial structure data set is constructed. The AI algorithm is designed to generate the structure that meets the performance automatically. Finally, the data set enhancement and algorithm adjustment are iterated to enrich the data set and improve the algorithm’s performance.
