Paper Abstract

In this paper, the tunneling phenomenon occurring in a pair structure consisting of epsilon-negative (ENG) and mu-negative (MNG) metamaterials is investigated. First, the ENG and MNG metamaterials are fabricated using coplanar waveguide loading with lumped-element series capacitors and shunt inductors. Then, the tunneling phenomenon occurring in the ENG-MNG pair is experimentally demonstrated. Finally, the properties of the tunneling mode are studied and the results show that the tunneling frequency is independent of the pair length and the electric field of the tunneling mode is highly localized at the interface of the ENG-MNG pair.
