Abstract

We study through experiments and associated simulations the electromagnetic response of microwave fishnet metamaterials and its dependence on the system's geometrical parameters. Our study verifies the validity of an earlier proposed inductor-capacitor (LC) circuit description of the fishnet design and reveals a left-handed response with high transmittance for a wide variety of geometrical structure parameters. This study paves the way to achieve optimized left-handed fishnet metamaterial designs. (C) 2009 Optical Society of America
