We analyze the properties of microstructured materials with negative refraction, the so-called left-handed metamaterials. We consider a two-dimensional periodic structure created by arrays of wiresâ€¦ (More)

We study the second-harmonic generation (SHG) in left-handed metamaterials with a quadratic nonlinear response. We demonstrate a novel type of the exact phase matching between theâ€¦ (More)

As is known, a totally reflected beam experiences a lateral displacement from its position predicted by the geometric optics because each of its plane-wave components undergoes a different phaseâ€¦ (More)

We study the electromagnetic beam reflection from layered structures that include the so-called double-negative metamaterials, also called left-handed metamaterials. We predict that such structuresâ€¦ (More)

We suggest using tapered waveguides for compensating losses of surface plasmon-polaritons in order to enhance nonlinear effects at the nanoscale. We study nonlinear plasmon self-focusing in taperedâ€¦ (More)

We describe novel physics of nonlinear magnetoinductive waves in left-handed composite metamaterials. We derive the coupled equations for describing the propagation of magnetoinductive waves, andâ€¦ (More)

Using the quasi-particle approach, we studied the problem of the reflection of quadratic spatial solitons from an interface between two x (2) media with slightly different linear and nonlinearâ€¦ (More)

We describe the properties of specific non-reflecting birefringent left-handed metamaterials and demonstrate a birefringent perfect lens for vectorial fields. We predict that, in a sharp contrast toâ€¦ (More)

We study the effect of disorder on the effective magnetic response of composite left-handed metamaterials and their specific properties such as negative refraction. We show that relatively weakâ€¦ (More)
