    Abstract The terahertz spectrum of electromagnetic waves is finding its position in various applications of day to day life because of its unique properties, including the penetration through opaque materials. Naturally occurring materials in this range are rare due to the display of a natural breakpoint of both electric, and magnetic resonances in these materials. However recent advances in artificially engineered materials, which show resonance in this region are able to harness desirable properties in the terahertz region. In this paper, terahertz design and fabrication issues have been explored along with their applications. A brief review of metamaterial terahertz applications has… More >

    Polarization Independent Dual-band Metamaterial Based Radar Absorbing Structure (RAS) for MillimeterWave Applications

    Shiv Narayan1, Latha S.1 and R M Jha1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 217-230, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.217
    Abstract The EM analysis of multi-layered metamaterial based radar absorbing structure (RAS) with dual-band characteristics in millimeter wave frequency regime has been carried out in this paper using transmission line transfer matrix (TLTM) method for TE and TM polarizations. The proposed metamaterial-based RAS exhibits dual-band characteristics at centre frequencies 120 GHz and 175 GHz with very low power reflection. It absorbs more than 90% power of incidence wave over the frequency range from 111-131 GHz at first resonance and from 164.5-185 GHz at second resonance without metal backing plate, which is desirable for stealth applications. It also showed very low (<… More >

    Effective Surface Susceptibility Models for Periodic Metafilms Within the Dipole Approximation Technique

    A.I. Dimitriadis1, N.V. Kantartzis1 and T.D. Tsiboukis1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 231-265, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.231
    Abstract The most important surface susceptibility models for the electromagnetic characterization of periodic metafilms, based on the dipole approximation method, are systematically analyzed in this paper. Specifically, two well-known techniques, which lead to a set of local effective surface parameters, are investigated along with a new dynamic non-local modeling algorithm. The latter formulation is properly expanded, in order to be applicable for any arbitrary periodic metafilm, irrespective of its way of excitation. The featured schemes are then directly compared toward their ability to efficiently predict the reflection and transmission properties of several lossless and lossy metafilms. Their outcomes are carefully verified… More >

    Some Applications of Metamaterial Resonators Based on Symmetry Properties

    J. Naqui1, F. Martín1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 267-288, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.267
    Abstract Metamaterial resonators are electrically small resonant particles useful for the implementation of effective media metamaterials. In this paper, some applications of metamaterial resonators (such as the split ring resonator -SRR-, the complementary split ring resonator -CSRR-, the folded stepped impedance resonator -SIR-, and the electric LC resonator), that exploit the symmetry properties of transmission lines loaded with such symmetric particles, are reviewed. This covers differential (balanced) lines with common mode suppression, linear and angular displacement sensors (including alignment sensors), angular velocity sensors, and radiofrequency barcodes. Advantages and drawbacks as compared to existing implementations are also discussed. More >

    Characteristics of a Single I-shaped Slitted Zeroth-Order Resonance Mushroom Antenna based on Metamaterials

    Cherl-Hee Lee, Jonghun Lee1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 289-299, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.289
    Abstract The broadband design of a metamaterials-based zeroth-order resonance (ZOR) mushroom antenna with an I-shaped slit is presented and experimentally studied. The presented metamaterials-based antenna uses a unit cell based on a composite right/left handed (CRLH) transmission line and can provide a ZOR frequency. By designing the I-shaped slot resonance frequency adjacently to the ZOR frequency, the presented antenna can achieve a 10-dB bandwidth enhancement of roughly 7 times with respect to a conventional rectangular-shaped mushroom structure.

    Active Metamaterials for Modulation and Detection

    Sameer R. Sonkusale1, Wangren Xu1, Saroj Rout1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.39, No.3, pp. 301-315, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.039.301
    Abstract This paper illustrates some new concepts in the area of hybrid metamaterials, which are metamaterials that are embedded with active circuit elements such as transistors. Such transistor/metamaterial hybrids can exhibit some exotic electromagnetic properties which can be exploited for unusual and exciting functions. Two specific examples are provided. In one application, terahertz (THz) modulator based on embedding of psuedomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) within the metamaterial resonator, all implemented monolithically in a commercial gallium arsenide (GaAs) technology is presented. In another application, a detector array based on metamaterial perfect absorber for room-temperature detection of gigahertz (GHz) radiation within each… More >
