Three-dimensionality

Three-dimensionality

Designs for metamaterials that are isotropic and 3D, with low absorption and high transmission that operate at THz and optical frequencies, are needed to explore the full potential of negative index metamaterials. To this end, new blueprints acknowledging the corresponding conceptual fabrication boundary conditions will be pursued, and designs will be fabricated. (C. M. Soukoulis, Th. Koschny, G. Tuttle)
