Nonlinear Effects in Left-handed Metamaterials

Shadrivov, Ilya; Zharov, N Alexander; Kivshar, Yuri

Description

We analyze nonlinear properties of microstructured materials with negative refraction, the so-called left-handed metamaterials. We demonstrate that the hysteresis-type dependence of the magnetic permeability on the field intensity allows changing the material properties from left- to right-handed and back. We predict also that nonlinear left-handed metamaterials can support both TE- and TM-polarized self-trapped localized beams, spatial electromagnetic solitons. Such solitons appear as single-...[Show more]
