Since the concept of metamaterials was first proposed at the end of the 20th Century, they have been the subject of much research and many discussions within the waves community. More than 10 years later, the number of related published articles is increasing significantly. On the one hand, this success can be attributed to the dream of new physical objects which are the consequences of metamaterials’ singular properties. Among them, we can consider the examples of perfect lensing and invisibility cloaking. On the other hand, metamaterials also provide new tools for the design of well-known wave functions, such as antennas for electromagnetic waves.
This book provides an overview of the metamaterial concept as a prospect for a new practical tool for the study of waves and engineering, including both the electromagnetic spectrum, from microwaves to optics, and the field of acoustic waves.
