In recent years, there has been a burgeoning interest in rapidly growing field of metamaterials due to their unprecedented properties unattainable from ordinary materials. Veselago pointed out that a material exhibiting negative values of dielectric permittivity (ε) and magnetic permeability (μ) would have a negative refractive index . Generally speaking, the dielectric permittivity (ε) and the magnetic permeability (μ) are both positive for natural materials. In fact it is possible to obtain negative values for ε and μ by utilizing proper designs of metamaterials. Left-handed electromagnetism and negative refraction are achievable with artificially structured metamaterials exhibiting negative values of permittivity and permeability simultaneously at a certain frequency region. The first steps to realize these novel type of materials were taken by Smith et al., where they were able to observe a left-handed propagation band at frequencies where both dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability of the composite metamaterial are negative . Soon after, left-handed metamaterials with an effective negative index of refraction are successfully demonstrated by various groups .
