Abstract

The multi-layer two-dimensional(2-D) epsilon-negative (ENG), mu-negative (MNG) and double-negative (DNG) materials are investigated in this work. The unit cells consist of infinite dielectric cylinders of which the size and permittivity are chosen to excite the dominant electric and magnetic dipole modes inside the structure. This enables the ENG, MNG, and DNG behaviors. The material parameters are obtained from the simulated S-parameters by use of the Nicholson-Ross-Weir method. For the 2-layer structure in particular, the results show a possibility of DNG realization with a negative refractive index from 303MHz to 305MHz.
