Metamaterial-Based Flat Lens: Wave Concept Iterative Process Approach
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 75, 13-21, 2017
Abstract
Metamaterials left-hand negative refractive index has remarkable optical properties; this paper presents the results obtained from the study of a flat metamaterial lens. Particular interest is given to the interaction of electromagnetic waves with metamaterials in the structure of the lens Pendry. Using the new approach of the Wave Concept Iterative Process (WCIP) based on the auxiliary sources helps to visualize the behavior of the electric field in the metamaterial band and outside of its interfaces. The simulation results show an amplification of evanescent waves in the metamaterials with an index of n = -1, which corresponds to a resonance phenomenon to which the attenuation solution is canceled, leaving only the actual growth of these waves. This amplification permits the reconstruction of the image of the source with a higher resolution.
