Title: Double Negative Behavior in Metamaterials
Abstract: Metamaterials are a new form of structured materials designed to have electromagnetic properties not generally found in nature. In this talk, I will introduce a rigorous mathematical framework for controlling localized resonances and predicting exotic behavior inside optical metamaterials. The theory provides a rational basis for designing microstructure using multiphase nonmagnetic materials to create backward wave behavior across prescribed frequency ranges.
