Waveguides Composed of Metafilms/Metasurfaces: The Two-Dimensional Equivalent of Metamaterials
Christopher L. Holloway, Edward E. Kuester, David R. Novotny
In this paper we illustrate how metafilms (the two-dimensional equivalent of metamaterials) can be used to design novel waveguiding structures. The metafilm waveguide has the capability of being compact, flexible with low material and radiation losses. This makes it an attractive alternative to traditional core-cladding types of surface waveguides and as such could have potential applications for terahertz frequencies. We show comparisons to full-wave numerically results in order to first validate the proposed waveguiding structure and secondly to validate the technique used in the analysis of the wave guide.
