Abstract:
A compact meander-line resonator is proposed in this paper, which could provide negative permittivity with a small unit-towavelength ratio. The meander-line structure is simple to be designed and is convenient to be controlled. Negative index materials (NIM) are realized using units composed of meander lines and split-ring resonators (SRRs), which have simultaneously negative permittivity and permeability in a specified pass band with relatively low loss. Simulation results show the identified properties of the meander-line resonator and NIM.
