The stepping of the refraction interface, due to the finite unit cell size was showed by numerical simulation and by measurements on negative-index metamaterial wedge samples. The surface stepping on the metamaterial sample constitutes a grating, which could be expected to generate a diffracted beam in addition to the zeroth order refracted beam. The results confirms theoretical predictions of enhanced diffraction for negative index grating surfaces. It was found that a surface stepping added to a positive index wedge produces a single refracted beam identical to that of the smooth wedge.
