Abstract

In this paper we present a simple experimental procedure for studying the phase velocity behavior of a metafilm with tunable material properties. Using this approach we have studied the phase-velocity behavior of a metamaterial under different conditions. We show that a negative-phase velocity is not a sufficient condition for classifying a material as having negative-index material characteristics.
