Abstract

A band separating device that uses an anisotropic metamaterial exhibiting negative refraction is designed and measured. The metamaterial has frequency dispersion in one component of the permeability tensor. A beam is incident onto the metamaterial and undergoes frequency dependent reflection and refraction directing different bandwidths towards three distinct measurement ports. Design issues are discussed, and measurement results are presented.
