**Pendry’s artificial plasma**

Motivation: metallic behavior at GHz frequencies Problem: the dielectric response is negatively (close to) infinite Solution: “dilute” the metal The electrons density is reduced * The effective electron mass is increased due to self inductance Lowering the plasma frequency, Pendry, PRL,76, 4773 (1996)

**Effective medium at different regimes**

We choose propogation by X=normal (suitable for Nanowires) X=parallel Suitable for stratified medium x propagation extreme material properties epsilon near-zero Diffraction management Resolution limited by loss Low-loss Broad-band resolution limited by periodicity x propagation

23
**Conditions Normal-X direction (kx<<p/D)**

X=normal (suitable for Nanowires) x propagation kz kx Low loss moderate e values Limited by periodicity Low diffraction management diffraction management improves with em no near-0 e

24
**Conditions for Normal Z-direction**

**Metamaterials at low spatial frequencies**

The homogeneous medium perspective Averaged dielectric response Can be <0 To make it more quantitative, we can use a different perspective for metamaterials, of homogeneous medium that applies for spatial frequencies that are much smaller than the Bloch(?) wave-vector pi/D. For exaqmple, coupling light from air is well within this approximation and results in effective medium with new material properties. Also referred to as “indefinite medium” Hyperbolic dispersion! 34
