Birefringent left-handed metamaterials and perfect lenses for vectorial fields

Zharov, N Alexander; Zharova, Nina; Noskov, Roman E; Shadrivov, Ilya; Kivshar, Yuri


We describe the properties of specific non-reflecting birefringent left-handed metamaterials and demonstrate a birefringent perfect lens for vectorial fields. We predict that, in a sharp contrast to the concept of a conventional perfect lens realized at ε = μ = - 1 (where ε is the dielectric permittivity and μ is the magnetic permeability), the birefringent left-handed slab possesses the property of negative refraction either for TE- or TM-polarized waves or for both of them...[Show more]
