Back to TopEvaluating the potential shielding properties of periodic metamaterial slabs
Divitha Seetharamdoo; Marion Berbineau; AnneClaude Tarot; Kouroch Mahdjoubi 2009 International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility  EMC Europe, 2009
Metamaterials can prove to be good candidates for shields in EMC applications where weight reduction is a challenge. Indeed metamaterial slabs can provide the same reflective properties as conventional metallic screens but with a lower density and reduced weight. Another advantage is that they can be tailored to exhibit required frequencyselective properties. However, their performance in terms of shielding performance ...
Zongfu Yu; Shanhui Fan IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics, 2010
Based on the effects of photonic transitions, here we show that a linear, broadband, and nonreciprocal isolator can be accomplished by spatialtemporal refractive index modulations that simultaneously impart frequency and wave vector shifts during the photonic transition process. This paper demonstrates that onchip isolation can be accomplished with dynamic photonic structures in standard material systems that are widely used for ...
Exact Efficiency Evaluation in Loaded Diffused Optical Waveguide Modulators
V. Andresciani; M. N. Armenise; M. De Sario 1977 7th European Microwave Conference, 1977
In this paper, we consider an overlayed erfc diffused LiNbO3 ferroelectric crystal in order to design a planartype modulator by the mode conversion method. The multilayer structure is analysed into two configurations; in the first the optical axis is perpendicular to the electrode plane, in the second is parallel. In both cases the effects on the coupling coefficient of the ...
Origin of Birefringence in Wood at Terahertz Frequencies
Tara M. Todoruk; Ian D. Hartley; Matthew E. Reid IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology, 2012
In the wood products industry, terahertz (THz) radiation is showing promise for new types of sensing and imaging applications, which depend on the ability of THz radiation to probe the gross fiber structure of wood. The sensitivity to this gross fiber structure is a result of the strong birefringence of wood at THz frequencies. Wood is a complex structure, and ...
Linearization of a broadband analog optical link using multiple wavelengths
E. I. Ackerman International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics. Technical Digest (including High Speed Photonics Components Workshop) (Cat. No.98EX181), 1998
Instead of balancing the RF signal voltage on two modulator electrodes, broadband linearization of a link can be more easily achieved when two wavelengths are simultaneously modulated using a standard singleelectrode MachZehnder modulator.

Learn about the revolutionary new technology of negativerefraction metamaterials NegativeRefraction Metamaterials: Fundamental Principles and Applications introduces artificial materials that support the unusual electromagnetic property of negative refraction. Readers will discover several classes of negativerefraction materials along with their exciting, groundbreaking applications, such as lenses and antennas, imaging with super resolution, microwave devices, dispersioncompensating interconnects, radar, and defense. The book begins with a chapter describing the fundamentals of isotropic metamaterials in which a negative index of refraction is defined. In the following chapters, the text builds on the fundamentals by describing a range of useful microwave devices and antennas. Next, a broad spectrum of exciting new research and emerging applications is examined, including: * Theory and experiments behind a superresolving, negativerefractiveindex transmissionline lens * 3D transmissionline metamaterials with a negative refractive index * Numerical simulation studies of negative refraction of Gaussian beams and associated focusing phenomena * Unique advantages and theory of shaped lenses made of negativerefractiveindex metamaterials * A new type of transmissionline metamaterial that is anisotropic and supports the formation of sharp steerable beams (resonance cones) * Implementations of negativerefraction metamaterials at optical frequencies * Unusual propagation phenomena in metallic waveguides partially filled with negativerefractive index metamaterials * Metamaterials in which the refractive index and the underlying group velocity are both negative This work brings together the best minds in this cuttingedge field. It is fascinating reading for scie ntists, engineers, and graduatelevel students in physics, chemistry, materials science, photonics, and electrical engineering.

Exotic Dielectrics Made of Periodic Structures
Many extraction methods for approximately determining the electrical properties of a metamaterial slab have been developed; however, they are subject to certain limitations. In this chapter, the phase and dispersion relations of a periodic medium will be taken into account for obtaining the effective refractive index of a medium with respect to an arbitrary incident condition.
