Transformation Electromagnetics and Metamaterials Book Excerpt:

Transformation electromagnetics is a systematic design technique for optical and electromagnetic devices that enables novel wave-material interaction properties. The associated metamaterials technology for designing and realizing optical and electromagnetic devices can control the behavior of light and electromagnetic waves in ways that have not been conventionally possible. The technique is credited with numerous novel device designs, most notably the invisibility cloaks, perfect lenses and a host of other remarkable devices. Transformation Electromagnetics and Metamaterials: Fundamental Principles and Applications presents a comprehensive treatment of the rapidly growing area of transformation electromagnetics and related metamaterial technology with contributions on the subject provided by a collection of leading experts from around the world. On the theoretical side, the following questions will be addressed: “Where does transformation electromagnetics come from?,” “What are the general material properties for different classes of coordinate transformations?,” “What are the limitations and challenges of device realizations?,” and “What theoretical tools are available to make the coordinate transformation-based designs more amenable to fabrication using currently available techniques?” The comprehensive theoretical treatment will be complemented by device designs and/or realizations in various frequency regimes and applications including acoustic, radio frequency, terahertz, infrared, and the visible spectrum. The applications encompass invisibility cloaks, gradient-index lenses in the microwave and optical regimes, negative-index superlenses for sub-wavelength resolution focusing, flat lenses that produce highly collimated beams from an embedded antenna or optical source, beam concentrators, polarization rotators and splitters, perfect electromagnetic absorbers, and many others. This book will serve as the authoritative reference for students and researchers alike to the fast-evolving and exciting research area of transformation electromagnetics/optics, its application to the design of revolutionary new devices, and their associated metamaterial realizations.

Metamaterial Multiverse Book Excerpt:

Many physical properties of our universe, such as the relative strength of the fundamental interactions, the value of the cosmological constant, etc., appear to be fine-tuned for existence of human life. One possible explanation of this fine tuning assumes existence of a multiverse, which consists of a very large number of individual universes having different physical properties. Intelligent observers populate only a small subset of these universes, which are fine-tuned for life. In this book we will review several interesting metamaterial systems, which capture many features of important cosmological models and offer insights into the physics of many other non-trivial spacetime geometries, such as microscopic black holes, closed time-like curves (CTCs) and the Alcubierre warp drive.

EMPLOYING DIELECTRIC BASED MEDIA FOR CONTROLLING FIELD PATTERNS AND WAVE PROPAGATION IN ADVANCED ELECTROMAGNETIC DEVICES Book Excerpt:

Abstract : Rapid progress in developing electromagnetic devices and in governing the wave propagation during last years caused renewed interest to dielectric materials. First, engineered dielectric structures with spatial dispersion of their parameters came to replace uniform substrates in antennas and other resonance devices. Then additional boom of dielectric applications was caused by the possibility to employ dielectrics as materials of artificial media. Later, attention of researchers was attracted to properties of the media composed of dielectric resonators (DRs). Currently DRs are used to create metamaterials - the media with unprecedented properties, which cannot be found in nature. Dielectric photonic crystals and metamaterials are considered as the most perspective materials for photonics, since they can be integrated in devices without loss problems, which characterize, for example, plasmonic techniques. Recently, a booming interest emerged to employing in photonics directional light scattering from dielectric particles, since the wavelengths of this light could be controlled by dimensions of particles and their dielectric permittivity. Our work followed basic innovations, which defined contemporary employment of dielectrics in electromagnetics and photonics. In particular, we started from working out new engineering approaches to developing dielectric substrates in patch structures inspired by microstrip patch antennas, which are proposed to serve as MRI RF probes (Chapter 2). Then we redirected our attention to the problems, which restricted employment of dielectrics in left-handed media. In particular, we have shown that negative refraction in all-dielectric metamaterials is irrelevant to Mie resonances in dielectric elements (Chapter 3). Next, we turned to analysis of problems defining directional scattering from dielectric metasurfaces and have demonstrated that the nature of observed phenomena cannot be correctly understood without accounting for strong interaction between "atoms" of metasurafces (Chapter 4). Finally we discussed selected problems met at implementation of photonic crystals in the media of transformation optics based devices and have shown that some of the problems can be solved at employing the phenomenon of self-collimation, characteristic for periodic photonic structures (Chapter 5).
