EXACT ANALYTICAL SOLUTION FOR FIELDS IN A LOSSY CYLINDRICAL STRUCTURE WITH LINEAR GRADIENT INDEX METAMATERIALS

By M. Dalarsson, M. Norgren, and Z. Jaksic

Full Article PDF (240 KB)

Abstract:
We investigate the electromagnetic wave propagation across a finite inhomogeneous and anisotropic cylindrical metamaterial composite containing both positive and negative effective refractive index parts with linear spatial gradient. Exact analytical solutions for the electric and magnetic field distributions are obtained for a linear variation of effective refractive index across the structure. The model allows for general temporal dispersion and uniform losses within the composite.
