miniaturized antennas based on negative permittivity materials An antenna comprises a resonator and a waveguide. The resonator comprises at least one body having a negative effective electrical permittivity or a negative magnetic permeability when a resonance is excited therein by electromagnetic radiation lying in some portion of the microwave spectrum. A termination of the waveguide is situated adjacent the resonator. The resonator is conformed such that at the resonance, there is efficient coupling between the resonator and the waveguide.
metamaterial scanning lens antenna systems and methods The present invention is directed to systems and methods for radiating radar signals, communication signals, or other similar signals. In one embodiment, a system includes a controller that generates a control signal and an antenna coupled to the controller. The antenna includes a first component that generates at least one wave based on the generated control signal and a metamaterial lens positioned at some predefined focal length from the first component. The metamaterial lens directs the generated at least one wave.
resonant antennas An apparatus includes an object and one or more sensors located adjacent to or in the object. The object is formed of a material whose dielectric constant or magnetic permeability has a negative real part at microwave-frequencies. The one or more sensors are located adjacent to or in the object and measure an intensity of an electric or a magnetic field therein.
method of fabricating electromagnetic meta-materials Abstract In one embodiment, a method for fabricating electromagnetic meta-materials includes applying first and second array of electromagnetically reactive patterns to first and second non- conducting surfaces, wherein the first array includes at least one of a split ring resonator pattern, a square split ring resonator pattern, and a swiss roll pattern, and the second array includes a thin parallel wire pattern. The first and second non-conducting surfaces are joined together such that the first and second non- conducting surfaces bearing the first and second arrays of electromagnetically reactive patterns are commonly oriented. Alternately, a method may further include slicing between elements of the first and second arrays of electromagnetically reactive patterns in a plane perpendicular to the first and second surfaces to form a plurality of slices, rotating at least one of the slices, and applying a third array of electromagnetically reactive patterns to a third non-conducting surface.
metamaterials employing photonic crystals A periodic structure is disclosed that includes an array of point defects within the periodic structure. The array includes point defects in a least two dimensions of the periodic structure. Each point defect permits electromagnetic fields of a first wavelength that is otherwise within a band gap range of the periodic structure to exist in each of the point defects.
