  1. 1. Left-Handed Metamaterials for Microwave Engineering Applications Department of Electrical Engineering UCLA
  2. 2. Outline • Left-Handed Metamaterial Introduction Resonant approach Transmission line approach • Composite Right/Left-Handed Metamaterial • Metamaterial-Based Microwave Devices Dominant leaky-wave antenna Small, resonant backward wave antennas Dual-band hybrid coupler Negative refractive index flat lens • Future Trends • Summary
  3. 3. What is a Left-Handed Metamaterial? μ (Permeability) re conventional fle plasma d ct e cte (RH) fra d wire structure air air re nt ε < 0, μ > 0 ε > 0, μ > 0 ide n = + εμ inc No transmission ε (Permittivity) LHMs ferrites ε < 0, μ < 0 split rings structure air air ε > 0, μ < 0 n = − εμ No transmission 1967: Veselago speculates about the possibility of LHMs and discusses their properties.
  4. 4. What is a Left-Handed Metamaterial? Veselago’s Conclusions • Simultaneous negative permittivity (-ε) and permeability (-μ). • Reversal of Snell’s Law (negative index of refraction), Doppler Effect, and Cerenkov Effect. • Electric field, Magnetic field, and Wavevector of electromagnetic wave in a LHM form a left-handed triad. • LHMs support backward waves: anti-parallel group and phase velocity. • Artificial effectively homogenous structure: metamaterial.

  6. 6. LHM – Resonant Approach • 1967: LHM were first proposed by Russian Physicist Victor Veselago • 2001: LHM realized based on split ring resonators - Resonant Approach towards LHMs [2]. SRR metal wire SRR-based LHM unit-cell SRR: at resonance provides μ<0 metal wire: provides ε<0 • SRR-based metamaterials only exhibit LH properties at resonance - inherently narrow-band and lossy. • SRR-based LHMs are bulky - not practical for microwave engineering applications.
  7. 7. LHM – Transmission Line Approach • Backward wave transmission line can form a non-resonant LHM [3]-[4]. • Transmission Line Approach is based on the dual of a conventional transmission line. Series capacitance (CL) and shunt CL CL CL inductance (LL) combination supports a fundamental backward wave. LL LL −1 β= Perfect LH transmission line ω C L LL • Perfect LH transmission line not resonant dependent - low-loss and broad-band performance. • However, perfect LH transmission line is not possible due to unavoidable parasitic right- handed (RH) effects occurring with physical realization.

Comparison of LHMs to PBGs and Filters Photonic Bandgap (PBG) Filters period Similarities Similarities • periodic structures • periodic structures • can be more than one-dimensional • based on low-pass/high-pass structures Differences Differences • PBGs have to be periodic; lattice period • Filters generally designed to meet magnitude determines scattering specifications; LHMs designed to meet both • PBG operated at frequencies where lattice magnitude and phase. period is multiple of λg/2; LHMs operated at • Node-to-node phase shifts of 180° required frequencies where period < λg/4. for filters. • LHMs can be one-, two-, or three- dimensional and are used as bulk “mediums.”

  40. 40. Sievenpiper Unit-Cell: 1st Order Calculation distributed unit-cell equivalent circuit model fsh = 1/{2πsqrt(CR x LL)} series capacitance: CR ~ substrate permittivity x (patch area/substrate height) shunt inductance: LL ~ 0.2 x substrate height x ln[(2 x substrate height/via radis) – 1] * Left-handed mode will always occur below the shunt resonance (ωsh). Therefore, design dimensions such that wsh occurs at higher limit of frequency of interest. fsh ~ 5 GHz for the dimensions shown in previous slide.
