This lecture introduces the student to metamaterials. It categorizes metamaterials into resonant and nonresonant types. It is not a comprehensive lecture on the subject, but attempts to give the student an intuitive understanding of the subject. Topics include effective media metamaterials, left-handed metamaterials, anisotropic metamaterials, and hyperbolic metamaterials.
This course by Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf is intended to teach students about electromagnetic devices and how they may look and operate in coming decades. Special attention will be paid to periodic structures, metamaterials, and structures fabricated by 3D printing. Devices will be designed and analyzed using tools developed during the prerequisite course “Computational Electromagnetics” as well as some new tools developed in this course.
