A simple analytical model based on the transmission matrix approach is proposed for equivalent wire medium (WM) interfaces. The obtained ABCD matrices for equivalent interfaces capture the non-local effects due to the evanescent transverse magnetic (TM) WM mode and in part due to the propagating transverse electromagnetic (TEM) WM mode. This enables one to characterize the overall response of bounded WM structures by cascading the ABCD matrices of equivalent WM interfaces and WM slabs as…

In a spatially dispersive medium, the electric dipole moment of an inclusion cannot be related to the macroscopic electric field through a local relation. Several recent works have emphasized the
