Abstract

The magnetic properties of the metamaterial composed of both periodic and aperiodic closed rings are studied. Experimental results validate that metamaterials with 0 < μ < 1 can be non-dispersive in a wide frequency range. The magnetic properties are insensitive to disorders of the closed rings, e.g., the position disorders and the size disorders. The related causality issue is also discussed.
