Paper Abstract

Metamaterials have arisen in an attempt to engineer the electromagnetic properties of natural substances. It has been acknowledged that the emergence of metamaterials has implications to nearly all branches of science and engineering exploiting the electromagnetic radiation. This paper reviews seminal work of metamaterials from the vision to the realisation of subwavelength elements that contribute to varieties of electric and magnetic responses. Emphasis is given to the significance and opportunity of this new class of material augmenting terahertz technology. Although now there remain major milestones that scientists and engineers need to conquer, the future of this cutting-edge material technology is very bright.
