We report the results of a study of dielectric structures consisting of higher-permittivity posts embedded periodically in a lower-permittivity host matrix. Such structures can be fabricated by using low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) technology, which allows us to co-process different dielectrics in a single module. We simulate the transmission and reflection characteristics, as well as the field distribution in these structures, and show that they exhibit unusual electromagnetic properties because of interaction between the neighboring dielectric resonators at their respective resonant frequencies.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present the results of EM field and scattering parameter spectra simulations and measurements for unit cells composed from two cylindrical resonators. The backward wave observations in such unit cells demonstrated a complicated character that has not been reported before.

    ABSTRACT: The results of full-wave simulations of resonance responses of metamaterial structures incorporating multiple unit cells are presented. The structures under consideration include conventional metamaterials comprising arrays of split-ring resonators and cut wires, metamaterials composed of dielectric resonators, and electromagnetic shell-type cloaks consisting of either metallic or dielectric resonator arrays. The conducted studies have revealed drastic interactions between partcles in all types of metamaterials that can modify the mechanisms of wave propagation in these structures and need to be accounted for at the designing of metamaterials. The potential of utilizing integrated resonance responses to increase the tailorability of metamaterial properties is demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: Simulation analysis of electromagnetic response of infinite 2D arrays of dielectric ceramic resonators and of parallel 2D arrays comprising 3D metamaterial blocks is presented. Modeling of the arrays has been performed by applying periodic boundary conditions to various unit cells. It was revealed that coupling between elementary magnetic resonances in infinite 2D arrays can affect both the resonance frequency and the resonance Q-factor. Defects in array periodicity were found to cause partial splitting of the resonance modes. It was shown that coupling between parallel 2D arrays stacked in the direction of wave propagation produced a drastic splitting of the resonance modes and led to the formation of the resonance band. The observed effects demonstrate that the uniform medium concept can be not applicable to the description of 3D metamaterial structures.
