Abstract:

Microwave metamaterials have shown promise in numerous low power applications, ranging from strip lines to antennas. In general, metamaterials allow microwave designers to obtain electromagnetic characteristics not typically available in nature, leading to new behavior as well as reductions in the size of typical devices. High Power Microwave HPM sources have in the past drawn inspiration from work done in the conventional microwave source community. This programme of research focused on several key elements critical for the development of metamaterials for future HPM devices the effects of disorder in metamaterials, the effect of high power on the material, and a comparative analysis of different realizations of metamaterial atoms .
