Papasimakis, N., Fedotov, V.A., Zheludev, N.I. and Prosvirnin, S.L. (2008) Metamaterial analog of electromagnetically induced transparency. Physical Review Letters, 101, (25), 253903-[4pp.]. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.101.253903).
We present a new type of electromagnetic planar metamaterial that exhibit strong dispersion at a local minimum of losses and is believed to be the first metamaterial analog of electromagnetically induced transparency. We demonstrate that pulses propagating through such metamaterials experience considerable delay, whereas the thickness of the structure along the direction of wave propagation is much smaller than the wavelength, which allows successive stacking of multiple metamaterial slabs. This leads to a significant increase in the band of normal dispersion, as well as in transmission levels.
