Double negative materials offer great potential for applications in biomedical imaging, optical lithography and data storage. Such media support electromagnetic waves for which the phase velocity is antiparallel to the direction of energy flow as well as other unusual electromagnetic effects such as the reversal of the Doppler effect and Cerenkov radiation [41]. Double negative metamaterials are characterized by sub-wavelength microstructure and control radiation through a delicate combination of local and global resonances. This approach to controlling wave propagation is distinct from approaches using photonic materials which control radiation through multiple diffraction implemented by structuring the medium along the same length scale as the wave length of the incident radiation. Pendry [29] demonstrated that unconventional properties can be derived from sub-wavelength configurations of different conventional materials. It was shown that a cubic... |

It was shown that a cubic lattice of metal wires exhibited behavior associated with negative bulk dielectric constant near the plasma resonance of the structure. This resonance frequency is intrinsic to the lattice and lies in the microwave regime six decades below the plasma resonance of the metal used to make the lattice. Subsequently non-magnetic metallic split-ring resonators were constructed to deliver negative effective magnetic permeability at microwave frequencies [28]. In more recent work Smith et al. [39] experimentally demonstrated that arrays of metallic posts and split ring resonators could also support resonances at microwave frequencies and deliver negative effective negative refractive 1 index for a range of microwave frequencies. Subsequent work has delivered several new configurations of metallic resonators for double negative behavior [15, 19, 34, 46, 47, 48].

The main point of the article is to introduce a multi-scale method for exploring the universe of sub-wavelength microstructures that links the geometry of the microstructure to the actual dispersion relations for the medium without making use of any simplifying approximation (e.g. the dipole approximation). Here we consider periodic arrays of nonmagnetic scatterers made from two distinct materials. We present a systematic... |

The coated cylinders are parallel to the x3 axis and made from a frequency independent high dielectric core and a frequency dependent dielectric plasmonic coating (Figure 1). The host medium containing the coated rods has relative dielectric permittivity equal to unity. To generate effective magnetic properties the material comprising the core of the rod is chosen to be a high contrast dielectric material ǫR = γ/d 2 see, [9]. The dielectric coating is frequency dependent and characterized by single oscillator model that includes dissipation. The approach taken here solves the Maxwell equations directly and explicitly with no approximations made. The solution is given by a power series with each term iteratively defined by the solution of an auxiliary problem that is simpler than the original Maxwell system. In what follows we apply the power series method to identify the dispersion relation for TE modes with magnetic field parallel to the cylinders.

The leading order term in the expansion is the effective complex index of refraction for the medium. Figures displaying the real and imaginary parts of the leading order dispersion relation for several different bands are displayed in section 3 see, Figures 4(a) through 4(d). The higher order terms in the series involve corrections for spatial dispersion. When the media is assumed lossless the power series for each branch is shown to converge, see [12]. This is also true for lossy materials. This expansion provides the rigorous and explicit connection between microgeometry and dispersion. It provides the opportunity for the systematic design of sub-wavelength structures for control of dispersion based on the shape and topology of the inclusions used in the microgeometry. This is taken up in section 3 where several simulations exhibiting the sensitivity of the dispersion relations to the underlying geometry of the scatterers is presented. The methodology provides a way to systematically identify the location of the center frequency and band ... |

Subsequent work has delivered several new configurations of metallic resonators for double negative behavior [15, 19, 34, 46, 47, 48]. New designs for generating double negative properties in the optical regime rely on Mie resonances. One scheme employs coated rods made from a high dielectric core coated with a frequency dependent dielectric plasmonic or Drude type behavior at optical frequencies [43, 44, 45]. Other schemes employ small particles made from dielectric materials with large permittivity, [20, 30, 42]. Alternate strategies for generating negative bulk dielectric permeability at infrared and optical frequencies use special configurations of plasmonic nanoparticles [1], [37]. The list of metamaterial designs continues to grow and recent reviews of the subject can be found in [32] and [33]. In this article we focus on a class of simple microstructures and investigate the range of double negative behavior that one can engineer using lossy nonmagnetic materials.

New methodologies and issues for computing homogenized 3 properties for metamaterials using top down approaches are presented in [2], [3], [38]. Earlier work on the power series approach to sub-wavelength analysis has been developed and applied in [17] for characterizing the dynamic dispersion relations for Bloch waves inside plasmonic crystals. It has also been applied to assess the influence of effective negative permeability on the propagation of Bloch waves inside high contrast dielectrics [18], the generation of negative permeability inside metallic - dielectric resonators [36], and for concentric coated cylinder assemblages generating a double negative media [13]. 2 Power series representations We start with a metamaterial crystal characterized by a period cell containing a centered coated cylinder with plasmonic coating and high dielectric core. The core radius and the coating radius are denoted by a and b respectively (Figure 2).

Here we consider periodic arrays of nonmagnetic scatterers made from two distinct materials. We present a s... |

Earlier pioneering work [4], [23], identified electrostatic modes and showed how their use allows for the separation of the dielectric properties of the component materials from underlying geometric effects due to the structure of two-phase composites. Numerical methods for computation of electrostatic spectra for complex two-phase structures are developed in [24] For the problem at hand we apply the strategy developed by the authors in [12] and [11] to express the complex effective dielectric constant in terms of a new type of three phase electrostatic spectra. The effective dielectric constant is expressed in a spectral representation formula that explicitly links the configuration of the scatters to effective properties. Similarly the Dirichlet spectra delivers a representation formula for the magnetic permittivity. This formula agrees with the representation formula for the magnetic permittivity developed in the work of [9] for periodic arrays of high dielectric rods. In this article we provide explicit power series for the associated... |
