Paper Abstract

In earlier work, the transfer matrix method (TMM) and the angular plane wave spectrum method (APWS) have been used to analyze plane wave and beam propagation in a multilayer structure consisting of positive index and negative index materials. In this paper, we demonstrate the use the complex Poynting theorem (CPT) to validate numerical calculations by the TMM and APWS methods. Application of CPT also gives physical insight into the power balance inside such structures which may possess complex permittivities and permeabilities, and have propagating and nonpropagating waves.
