Paper Abstract

The electromagnetic response of metamaterial can be managed by combining resonances and interferences of different materials and on different lengths scales. In our contribution we study composite metamaterials containing resonant plasmonic metallic nanoparticles that show organization. The material bases its non-conventional properties on short distance self-organization by mesogens that form a liquid crystal material. We analyze the properties of such materials with a structural model containing organized nanoparticles. Theoretically insight of the electromagnetic properties is provided and we give details on their optical properties.
