Abstract

In this present article, we studied the transmission, refraction and focusing properties of one, two and three dimensional labyrinth based left-handed metamaterials. We demonstrated that the proper periodic arrangement of labyrinth structures and wires results in left-handed transmission. By using a two dimensional labyrinth based left-handed slab, it is shown that it is possible to image the field emitted from source in sub-wavelength detail. Moreover, we demonstrated the focusing and negative refraction of electromagnetic waves by a three dimensional labyrinth based left-handed slab. (C) 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
