We have fabricated a quarter-wave plate from a single layer of birefringent electric split-ring resonators (ELC). For comparison, an appropriately scaled double layer meanderline structure was fabricated. At the design frequency of 639 GHz, the ELC structure achieves 99.9% circular polarization while the meanderline achieves 99.6%. The me-anderline displays(More)
We propose the concept of a meta-substrate to broaden the bandwidth of left-handed metamaterials. The meta-substrate, which behaves like an inhomogeneous magnetic substrate, is composed of another kind of magnetic metamaterials like metallic closed rings. When conventional metamaterial rings are printed on this kind of meta-substrate in a proper way, the(More)
We demonstrate a metamaterials-based THz broadband polarization rotator which is able to rotate linearly polarized THz wave by 90 degree within a wide frequency range (0.44 to 0.76 THz). The device is characterized both theoretically and experimentally. Analyses show that the multiple-plasmon-resonance is the key for the broadband feature and the(More)
In this paper, we present the first experimental demonstration of double- and triple-band negative refraction index meta-foils in the terahertz (THz) region. Multi-band meta-foils constructed by multi-cell S-string resonators in a single structure exhibit simultaneously negative permittivity and negative permeability responses at multiple frequencies. The(More)
Coherent X-ray diffraction techniques play an increasingly significant role in the imaging of nanoscale structures, ranging from metallic and semiconductor to biological objects. In material science, X-rays are usually considered to be of a low-destructive nature, but under certain conditions they can cause significant radiation damage and heat loading on(More)
1 ABSTRACT Third order tracking calculations show that a wavelength shifter on the basis of a commercially available 12 T split-pair solenoid is compatible with the ANKA storage ring. 2 INTRODUCTION Superconducting split-pair solenoids are an attractive and commercially available solution for a high-field wavelength shifter provided that their non-linear(More)
