Abstract: We analyze the reflection and transmission coefficients calculated from transfer matrix simulations on finite lengths of electromagnetic metamaterials, to determine the effective permittivity ~«! and permeability ~m! .W e perform this analysis on structures composed of periodic arrangements of wires, split ring resonators ~SRRs!, and both wires and SRRs. We find the recovered frequency-dependent« and m are entirely consistent with analytic expressions predicted by effective medium arguments. Of particular relevance are that a wire medium exhibits a frequency region in which the real part of « is negative, and SRRs produce a frequency region in which the real part of m is negative. In the combination structure, at frequencies where both the recovered real parts of « and m are simultaneously negative, the real part of the index of refraction is also found to be unambiguously negative.

Abstract: A novel technique for the measurement of dielectric and magnetic properties of a homogeneous isotropic medium in the range of approximately 3 to 100 kmc is described. An accuracy of /l.chemc/ 1 per cent is possible in the determination of permittivity or permeability in those cases where the loss tangent is sulliciently small. The measuring structure is a resonator made up of a right circular cyndrical dielectric rod placed between two parallel conducting plates. For measurement of permittivity two or more resonant TE/sub onl/ mode frequencies are determined whereas for the measurement of permeability two or more resonant TM/sub onl/ mode frequencies are determined. The dielectric or magnetic properties are computed from the resonance frequencies, structure dimensions, and unloaded Q. Since the loss tangent is inversely proportional to the unloaded Q of the structure, the precision to which Q is measured determines the accuracy of the loss tangent.

Abstract: A set of 61 ion polarizabilities has been derived from the dielectric constants of 129 oxides and 25 fluorides using a least squares refinement technique in conjunction with the Clausius–Mosotti equation. These polarizabilities can be used to estimate mean dielectric constants of ‘‘well‐behaved’’ compounds. They should be particularly useful in calculation of mean dielectric constants of compounds whose dielectric constants have not been determined. They can also be used as a framework for distinguishing unusual dielectric behavior from normal dielectric behavior where deviations can frequently be attributed to piezo‐ or ferroelectricity, conductivity (ionic or electronic), ‘‘rattling’’ or ‘‘compressed’’ cations with correspondingly high or low polarizabilities, or the presence of dipolar impurities. Deviations observed from calculated dielectric constants can be used to search for unusual physical behavior.
