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.

  11. Transmission of images with subwavelength resolution to distances of several wavelengths in microwave, terahertz and infrared ranges

    08 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Pavel Belov

    The resolution of conventional imaging systems is restricted by thediffraction limit: the details smaller than half-wavelength of radiationcannot be resolved. Using novel engineered media with extreme opticalanisotropy and their waveguiding properties it is possible to overcomethe classical limit...
