Description

Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to provide properties which may not be readily available in nature. These materials usually gain their properties from structure rather than composition, using the inclusion of small inhomogeneities to enact effective macroscopic behavior.

    Frequency domain simulation of single-period multilayer gratings and optical metamaterials upon TE/TM plane-wave incidence at arbitrary angles

  2. Plasmonic Metamaterials: Unusual Optics and Applications

    28 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Smolyaninov

    Surface plasmon-polaritons (or plasmons) are collective excitations of the conduction electrons and the electromagnetic field on the surface of such good metals as gold and silver. Near the frequency of surface plasmon resonance plasmons may perceive regular dielectrics as negative index...

  3. Plasmonic Nanophotonics: Coupling Light to Nanostructure via Plasmons

    03 Oct 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev

    The photon is the ultimate unit of information because it packages data in a signal of zero mass and has unmatched speed. The power of light is driving the photonicrevolution, and information technologies, which were formerly entirely electronic, are increasingly enlisting light to communicate...

  7. Some Remarks to Electrodynamics of Materials with Negative Refraction

    26 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Victor G. Veselago

    The negative refraction coefficient n < 0 can be introduced for isotropic materials with anti-parallel directions of phase and group velocities. If some of material can be described by negative n it will have also negative values of both (electrical ε and magnetic μ) permeabilities. In materials...
