Computational Design of Disordered Optical Metamaterials Beyond the Quasistatic Regime

A metamaterial is composed of two types of materials in a thin layered array, metals and dielectrics. Metamaterials interact with electromagnetic waves differently than conventional materials due to their anisotropic dispersion relation. The layered material can change dispersion relation depending on the layering of the system. With the data collected on the dielectric constant of two different substances, a model of the metamaterial can be simulated using MATLAB to predict a certain value for the dielectric constant.
