Hybrid resonant phenomena in a SRR/YIG metamaterial structure.


Journal Article

We consider the hybridization of the resonance of a SRR metamaterial with the gyromagnetic material resonance of yittrium iron garnet (YIG) inclusions. The combination of an artificial structural resonance and natural material resonance generates a unique hybrid resonance that can be harnessed to make tunable metamaterials and further extend the range of achievable electromagnetic materials. A predictive analytic model is applied that accurately describes the characteristics of this SRR/YIG hybridization. We suggest that this hybridization has been observed in experimental data presented by Kang et al. [Opt. Express, 16, 8825 (2008)] and present numerical simulations to support this assertion. In addition, we investigate a design for optimizing the SRR/YIG structure that shows strong hybridization with a minimum amount of YIG material.
