We present a combined double S-shaped metamaterial structure that exhibits a left-handed property over a wide frequency band of 6 GHz. The transmission experiment, phase measurement, and prism refraction experiment from the structure confirm the presence of the negative index of refraction.

This paper calculates residual (over) refractions and their natures. The magnitude of the power of the over-refraction...
