Abstract

The electrodynamic properties of a novel class of photonic-crystal metamaterial platform entirely synthesized by ultralow-refractive-index suspended nanostrips embedded in a dielectric matrix are described and investigated. The optical properties of the homogeneous metamaterial platform can be understood on the basis of equivalent distributed circuit extraction from an electromagnetic model that has negatively distributed superinductive properties. Low propagation loss, temperature-insensitive characteristics, and ultracompact size are the main advantages of the proposed technology, making this new type of metamaterial an excellent candidate for use in compact multilayer nanophotonic integrated systems.
