We investigate the capacitance tuning of nanoscale split-ring resonators. Based on a simple inductor-capacitor circuit model, we derive an expression, where the inductance is proportional to the area while the capacitance reflects the aspect ratio of the slit. The resonance frequency may thus be tuned by the slit aspect ratio leaving the area, the lattice constant Λ, and nearest-neighbor coupling in periodic structures invariant. Experimental data follow the predictions of the simple LC-model.

    We study the spatiotemporal dynamics of spatially extended nonlinear cavities containing a left-handed material. Such materials, which have a negative index of refraction, have been experimentally demonstrated recently, and allow for novel electromagnetic behavior. We show that the insertion of...

    We consider the possibility to create a gyrotron with smooth mechanical frequency tuning on the basis of multimirror quasi-optical resonators.

    Periodic dielectric structures, such as Bragg reflectors and photonic band-gap crystals, are used to localize electromagnetic modes. A key parameter for electromagnetic resonators is the quality factor, Q. For conventional Bragg reflectors, losses occur predominantly in the first few reflectors...

    The resonator is an important component of a thermoacoustic compressor, since its working frequency and profiles of pressure and velocity are significantly influenced by its geometry and dimensions. The performance of pulse tube cryocooler driven by thermoacoustic compressor greatly depends on...
