Local constitutive relations, i.e. a weak spatial dispersion, are usually considered in the effective description of metamaterials. However, they are often insufficient and effects due to a nonlocality, i.e. a strong spatial dispersion, are encountered. Recently (K. Mnasri et al., arXiv:1705.10969), a generic form for a nonlocal constitutive relation has been introduced that could accurately describe the bulk properties of a metamaterial in terms of a dispersion relation. However, the… 
Modeling Optical Metamaterials with Strong Spatial Dispersion
Optical metamaterials are artificial media made from subwavelength inclusions with unconventional properties at optical frequencies. While a response to the magnetic field of light in natural
Towards more general constitutive relations for metamaterials: A checklist for consistent formulations
When the period of unit-cells constituting metamaterials is no longer much smaller than the wavelength but only smaller, local material laws fail to describe the propagation of light in such
Mesoscopic electrodynamics at metal surfaces
Abstract Plasmonic phenomena in metals are commonly explored within the framework of classical electrodynamics and semiclassical models for the interactions of light with free-electron matter. The
