Negative permeability from split ring resonator arrays


Journal Article

A single split ring resonator (SRR) was fabricated lithographically and its accompanying resonance curve is shown to determine if periodic arrays of SRRs can have a resonantly enhanced effective permeability displaying frequency regions with large positive or negative values. The SRR medium now offers the possibility of engineering materials to respond to time varying magnetic fields as well as time varying electric fields. Combining such composite media with standard materials offers the potential to yield novel and advantageous electromagnetic devices.
