Anthony Grbic (University of Michigan)
This talk will describe negative refractive index metamaterials that are
based on transmission-line networks. It will focus on microwave structures
that consist of transmission lines loaded with reactive elements. Both
planar and volumetric negative refractive index metamaterials will be
presented and their operation explained. Finally, ways to push these
transmission-line based structures to optical frequencies using plasmonic
materials will be described.
