Metamaterials belong to the class of artificial materials that can be engineered to exhibit properties that cannot be found in nature such as the negative index of refraction. Metamaterials offer exciting new opportunities for controlling and modifying the flow of electromagnetic radiation. In combination with conventional materials artificially engineered metamaterials open the new ways to a range of applications in microwave, terahertz and photonic devices that range from super-resolution optical instruments and microwave antennas to photonic signal-processing circuits.
