Modeling of Metamaterials in Wave Propagation

Pp. 197-226 (30)

G. Leugering, E. Rohan and F. Seifrt


This chapter focuses on acoustic, electromagnetic, elastic and piezo-electric wave propagation through heterogenous layers. The motivation is provided by the demand for a better understanding of meta-materials and their possible construction. We stress the analogies between the mathematical treatment of phononic, photonic and elastic meta-materials. Moreover, we treat the cloaking problem in more detail from an analytical and simulation oriented point of view. The novelty in the approach presented here is with the interlinked homogenization- and optimization procedure.
