Transmission Through a Scalar Wave Three-Dimensional Electromagnetic Metamaterial and the Implication for Polarization Control
Abstract:An interweaving-conductor metamaterial (ICM) is a metamaterial composed of multiple, interlocking, conducting networks. It exhibits unusual optical properties in the low-frequency linear-dispersion regime. In particular, two-network ICM supports only one, non-dispersive mode in the low frequency range, and is best described as an effective medium supporting a scalar wave in full three dimensions. We explore the light transmission properties of such a metamaterial, and the implications of a scalar wave medium for polarization control. Polarizers and polarization rotators with subwavelength sizes are numerically demonstrated.
