Abstract

We investigate the electromagnetic response of the concentric multi-ring, or the bull's eye, structure as an extension of the dual-ring metamaterial which exhibits electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT)-like transmission characteristics. Our results show that adding inner rings produces additional EIT-like peaks, and widens the metamaterial’s spectral range of operation. Analyses of the dispersion characteristics and induced current distribution further confirmed the peak’s EIT-like nature. Impacts of structural and dielectric parameters are also investigated.
