Modeling a Negative Refractive Index (Wave Optics)

Application ID: 14687

It is possible to engineer the structure of materials such that both the permittivity and permeability are negative. Such materials are realized by engineering a periodic structure with features comparable in scale to the wavelength. It is possible to model both the individual unit cells of such a material, as well as, to model to properties of a bulk negative index material. This example demonstrates the correct way to model a metamaterial domain with bulk negative permittivity and permeability.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
