Leading experts explore the exotic properties and exciting
applications of electromagnetic metamaterials
"Metamaterials: Physics and Engineering Explorations" gives
readers a clearly written, richly illustrated introduction to the
most recent research developments in the area of electromagnetic
metamaterials. It explores the fundamental physics, the designs,
and the engineering aspects, and points to a myriad of exciting
potential applications. The editors, acknowledged leaders in the
field of metamaterials, have invited a group of leading researchers
to present both their own findings and the full array of
state-of-the-art applications for antennas, waveguides, devices,
Following a brief overview of the history of artificial
materials, the publication divides its coverage into two major
classes of metamaterials. The first half of the publication
examines effective media with single (SNG) and double negative
(DNG) properties; the second half examines electromagnetic band gap
(EBG) structures. The book further divides each of these classes
into their three-dimensional (3D volumetric) and two-dimensional
(2D planar or surface) realizations. Examples of each type of
metamaterial are presented, and their known and anticipated
properties are reviewed.
Collectively, "Metamaterials: Physics and Engineering
Explorations" presents a review of recent research advances
associated with a highly diverse set of electromagnetic
metamaterials. Its multifaceted approach offers readers a
combination of theoretical, numerical, and experimental
perspectives for a better understanding of their behaviors and
their potentialapplications in components, devices, and
systems.Extensive reference lists provide opportunities to explore
individual topics and classes of metamaterials in greater
With full-color illustrations throughout to clarify concepts
and help visualize actual results, this book provides a dynamic,
user-friendly resource for students, engineers, physicists, and
other researchers in the areas of electromagnetic materials,
microwaves, millimeter waves, and optics. It equips newcomers with
a basic understanding of metamaterials and their potential
applications. Advanced researchers will benefit from
thought-provoking perspectives that will deepen their knowledge and
lead them to new areas of investigation.
