Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas FORTH as follows The expected results include full understanding of the role of the periodicity on the negative index behavior. Exploitation of this understanding for optimization of Left Handed Materials LHM for different functionalities. b Negative Index Materials NIM operating in the THz regime and upwards. Determination of the frequency limits of the NIM behavior and understanding of the physical mechanism for these limits. Design, modeling, and, possible fabrication and characterization of negative index structures operating in the highest determined frequency limits. Deliverables Reports on the results a and b mentioned above, at the end of the project, and interim reports documenting progress.
