    Recently, there has been plenty of work in designing and fabricating materials with an effective negative refractive index. Veselago realized that a slab of material with a refractive index of -1 would act as a lens. Pendry suggested that the Veselago lens would act as a superlens, providing a...

    The gain-assisted plasmonic analog of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) in a metallic metamaterial is investigated for the purpose to enhance the sensing performance of the EIT-like plasmonic structure. The structure is composed of three bars in one unit, two of which are parallel...

  • Low frequency lumped element-based negative index metamaterial. Erentok, Aycan; Ziolkowski, Richard W.; Nielsen, J. A.; Greegor, R. B.; Parazzoli, C. G.; Tanielian, M. H.; Cummer, Steven A.; Popa, Bogdan-Ioan; Hand, Thomas; Vier, D. C.; Schultz, S. // Applied Physics Letters;10/29/2007, Vol. 91 Issue 18, p184104 

    A lumped element-based negative index metamaterial (NIM) was designed, fabricated, and tested for operation at 400 MHz in the ultrahigh frequency (UHF) band. At 400 MHz the measured real part of the index of refraction of this NIM was nreal=-3.11 with a loss that was less than 1 dB/cm using unit...

    Metamaterials, composed of artificial structures with subwavelength unit cells, can be fabricated to achieve gradually refractive indices. By designing the refractive indices properly, a gradient-index planar slab will transform spherical waves to plane waves. Using such a property, we propose a...
