A tunable metamaterial based on conducting coils loaded by an electronic circuit containing a varicap diode has been demonstrated. The agility exceeds one octave inside the 100–500 MHz range. Permeability levels are significantly increased when the loop is loaded by a proper magnetic material. A model gives a good desription of the observed permeability spectra. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
