We review experimental studies performed on left-handed metamaterials (LHM) at microwave frequencies. The metamaterial structure is composed of periodic arrays of split-ring resonators and wire meshes and exhibits a left-handed propagation band at frequencies of negative permittivity and negative permeability. Negative refraction is verified using prism shaped LHM and also by beam-shifting method. Subwavelength focusing of a point source is achieved with a resolution of 0.13λ, through a flat LHM superlens.

Experimental study of subwavelength focusing by lefthanded metamaterials with a negative refractive index Özbay, Ekmel; Aydin, K. (2007)Two dimensional (2D) left-handed metamaterials (LHM) exhibiting negative refraction and subwavelength imaging are studied experimentally. A left-handed transmission band is observed at the frequencies where both dielectric ...
Development of left-handed composite materials and negative refracting photonic crystals with subwavelength focusing Özbay, Ekmel (SPIE, 2005)We review the studies conducted in our group concerning electromagnetic properties of metamaterials and photonic crystals with negative effective index of refraction. In particular, we demonstate the true left handed ...
