Abstract

Losses are the main evil that limits the use of metamaterials in practical applications. While radiation losses may be controlled by design, Joule losses are hereditary to the metamaterial structures. An exception is superconducting metamaterials, where Joule losses can be uniquely controlled with temperature in a very wide range. We put this in use by demonstrating temperature-dependent transmission in the millimeter-wave part of the spectrum in high-Tc superconducting cuprate metamaterials supporting sub-radiant resonances of Fano type.
