New Publication: Realising an ultra-wideband backward-wave metamaterial waveguide

Congratulations to our XM² alumnus Sathya Sai Seetharaman who has recently published a paper in Physical Review B on ‘Realising an ultra-wideband backward-wave metamaterial waveguide’. The authors demonstrate, through experiment and numerical modeling, that the operational bandwidth of a CSRR metamaterial waveguide can be improved by restricting cross-polarization effects in the constituent meta-atoms. Sathya is […]
