Millimeter-wave left-handed extraordinary transmission metamaterial demultiplexer.
IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters
In this work, by using an extraordinary transmission metamaterial prism and taking advantage of its inherent dispersive behavior, the feasibility of manufacturing a demultiplexer/multiplexer or even a spectrogram analyzer at millimeter-waves is shown. Depending on the incoming beam frequency, the outgoing beam suffers in a wedge-shaped configuration a different deflection (governed by Snell's law). Since the frequency dependent index of refraction of this metamaterial can go from negative values to almost zero for the first propagation band (cut-off regime) and also be positive for the second propagation mode (non-cut-off regime), different negative and positive outgoing angles can be obtained and then, diverse paths for each frequency, as the Fresnel zone experimental results confirm. © 2009 IEEE.
