Modeling of Negative Refractive Index Metamaterial (Wave Optics)

Application ID: 14687


It is possible to engineer the structure of materials such that both the permittivity and permeability are negative. Such materials are realized by engineering a periodic structure with features comparable in scale to the wavelength. It is possible to model both the individual unit cells of such a material, as well as, to model to properties of a bulk negative index material. This example demonstrates the correct way to model a metamaterial domain with bulk negative permittivity and permeability.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
