Abstract

In order to more clearly observe the bianisotropic effects due to fabrication-induced structural asymmetries in negative-index metamaterials based on a fishnet structure, it is necessary to measure the optical properties with symmetric substrate and superstrate bounding layers. This is accomplished in this report using an index-matching fluid and identical substrate and superstrate glass materials.
