Abstract

In this work we study the anomalous negative refraction when a plane wave is incident from an isotropic medium to a uniaxial absorbing medium. We study the influence of the anisotropy on the refractive indices and the anisotropy on the absorption coefficients in the negative refraction of these materials. Negative refraction can occur for the ordinary and extraordinary waves for a wide range of values of the angle of incidence. The allowed values of the angle of incidence that lead to negative refraction are analyzed in detail as a function of the orientation of the optic axis and the values of the refractive indices and absorption coefficients.
