dc.description.abstract <p>Electromagnetic composite materials have</p> <p>attracted much interest in recent years, due to their desirable</p> <p>microwave and optical applications. One class of these is negative</p> <p>refractive index materials, or double negative materials, in which</p> <p>both permittivity and permeability of materials are simultaneously</p> <p>negative. Many exciting potential applications of double negative</p> <p>materials have been proposed, such as the perfect lens and the</p> <p>cloaking device. Here, a simple-cubic lattice of identical,</p> <p>homogeneous or coated non-metallic spherical particles embedded in a</p> <p>matrix is analyzed. One contribution of this work is the derivation</p> <p>of an analytical formula for the threshold dielectric loss angle of</p> <p>spherical inclusions, above which DNG behavior of the system is</p> <p>extinguished. In addition, analytical formulas are derived from</p> <p>which double negative bandwidth of a simple-cubic lattice of</p> <p>identical, magnetodielectric homogeneous or coated spheres can be</p> <p>determined.</p> <p>Another case of interest is nanocomposites, which commonly consist</p> <p>of nanoparticles embedded in a polymer matrix. These materials show</p> <p>superior dielectric or mechanical performance by taking advantage of</p> <p>the merits of their individual non-hybrid components. In one</p> <p>manifestation, diblock copolymers can be utilized to spatially</p> <p>separate nanoparticles by incorporating them in one block,</p> <p>preferentially, to form a long-range ordered structure. By designing</p> <p>this structure, the electromagnetic properties can be tailored for</p> <p>potential applications in novel devices. Here, molecular dynamics of</p> <p>polymer matrices and nanocomposites is analyzed by parametric</p> <p>modeling of their dielectric spectra, supporting design of a</p> <p>composite with desired electromagnetic properties.</p>
