Equivalent circuit analysis of metamaterial strain-dependent effective medium parameters

Journal Article

In this paper, we analytically describe the strain-dependent effective medium properties for a metamaterial electric-LC (ELC) resonator, commonly used in metamaterial designs to provide a tailored electric response to electromagnetic waves. Combining an equivalent circuit model of the ELC resonator with existing analytic expressions for the capacitive and inductive regions comprising the structure, we obtain strain-dependent permittivity and permeability curves for the metamaterial. The derived expressions account for the effects of spatial dispersion and losses. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
