Abstract

Materials that exhibit negative index (NI) of refraction have several potential applications in microwave technology. Examples include enhanced transmission line capability, power enhancement/size reduction in antenna applications and, in the field of nondestructive testing, improved sensitivity of patch sensors and detection of sub-wavelength defects in dielectrics by utilizing a NI superlens.
