Paper Abstract

Negative phase velocity materials are engineered media that are currently enjoying a surge of interest due to their interesting properties and potential applications, through negative refraction, to achieve cloaking that makes things invisible. The literature is alive with papers devoted to the design of suitable metamaterials and there is a particular desire to operate at THz frequencies and above. A full theory of gain control up to the THz frequency range is presented together with a comprehensive study of diffraction-managed solitons. There are aspects of control that can be achieved through externally imposed influences such as gyroelectromagnetic effects. Nonlinear behaviour is also intrinsic to the Holy Grail quest for complete control, coupled to the possibility of beneficial competition between damping and gain.
