Paper Abstract

The development of electromagnetic (EM) metamaterials for perfect lensing and optical cloaking has given rise to novel multilayer bandgap structures using stacks of positive and negative index materials. Propagation of a collection of TE or TM plane waves, comprising the angular plane wave spectrum, through such structures is analyzed by using the transfer matrix method (TMM) on every plane wave component. Results obtained from this TMM approach for a Gaussian spectrum are compared with those using standard FEM techniques.
