Abstract:
This paper discusses the electromagnetic characteristics of a stratified metamaterial structure placed in fractional dimension space. Reflection and transmission coefficients for plane wave incident on multilayered structure in D-dimensional space are computed. Transfer matrix method is used to study the behaviour of different planer multilayered periodic metamaterial structures. The results are compared for integer and fractal dimensional spaces for both the cases of normal and oblique incidences. Classical results are recovered for integer dimensions. This work provides solution for examining the electromagnetic fields and waves in multilayered structures at fractal interfaces.
