Paper Abstract

A new kind of metamaterials based on hierarchically organized mirror channels with semitransparent walls, metamirror structures (MMS) is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Unusual optical properties of MMS like back reflection, negative refraction and some others are close to that exhibited by left-handed materials though the physical mechanisms are different. Being mechanically solid materials due to relatively small cell sizes (from one to tens microns), the MMS may have abnormal optical properties in wide wavelength range. The ray tracing is considered for different MMS geometries and types. It is shown that one reflection 2D MMS's based on rectangular elementary cells being properly curved possess lens properties and MMS lens generalized law is derived. Also, the MMS membranes may serve as filters of radiation both in reflection and transmission.
