The specific features of the transmission spectra of the TE-wave normally incident from the uniform medium onto the fine-stratified structure fabricated by periodic alternating ferrite and semiconductor layers were investigated. The expressions for effective permeability and permittivity were obtained in the long-wave limit. It was shown that, in the investigated multilayer composite, the left-handed behavior is possible. The dependence of transmission spectra of electromagnetic waves that propagate through a fine-stratified magnetoactive structure on the external magnetic field was examined experimentally.
