Metamaterials and their application in microwaves: A review
A metamaterial is a composite material that has attracted the attention of researchers since the late 1990s-early 2000s. This material contains an artificial periodic structure, which modifies its
3-D Metamaterials: Trends on Applied Designs, Computational Methods and Fabrication Techniques
Metamaterials are artificially engineered devices that go beyond the properties of conventional materials in nature. Metamaterials allow for the creation of negative refractive indexes; light
Dipole Mode Analysis of Arrays of Dielectric and Plasmonic Particle Metamaterials
This dissertation presents a theoretical study and numerical evaluations of design and applications of metamaterials. We begin with a brief review of the history of metamaterials and then investigate
Ferromagnetic Nanowire Metamaterials: Theory and Applications
An overview of ferromagnetic nanowire (FMNW) metamaterials is presented. First, FMNW metamaterials are placed in the historical context of antique composites and 20th Century artificial dielectrics,
Mathematical and numerical frameworks for metamaterials and metasurfaces
This thesis is devoted to the mathematical foundations of metasurfaces and metamaterials. It is divided into three parts. The aim of the first part is to provide a mathematical and numerical
A review of metasurfaces: physics and applications.
Recent progress in the physics of metasurfaces operating at wavelengths ranging from microwave to visible is reviewed, with opinions of opportunities and challenges in this rapidly developing research field.

Metamaterials are artificial materials, consisting of sub-wavelength building blocks, which can show anomalous and exotic electromagnetic responses. Metal-based metamaterials, as the first
Active Reconfigurable Metamaterial Unit Cell Based on Non-Foster Elements
Abstract : Most research in metamaterials (artificially enhanced materials which modify the permittivity and permeability of electromagnetic wave propagation in order to steer EM waves in novel ways)
Metamaterial homogenization and acoustic metasurface
In this thesis, I present a homogenization scheme for acoustic metamaterials that is based on reproducing the lowest orders of scattering amplitudes from a finite volume of metamaterials. This
