In this paper, we present experimental verification of the sensitivity improvement of evanescent-field probes using single-negative (SNG) metamaterials. Artificial magnetic materials are designed and fabricated to realize a ¿-negative SNG material. The response of an electrically small probe to an electrically small target is investigated numerically and… CONTINUE READING
