Abstract

The method of fabrication of bulk three-dimensional curvilinear metamaterials based on metallic nanowires grown in porous alumina membranes was developed. Morphologically, fabricated structures resemble those earlier proposed for the design of an optical cloak and a hyperlens. Feasibility and flexibility of the suggested technological platform paws the road to engineering novel curvilinear hyperbolic metamaterials via inexpensive non-lithographic routes.
