Abstract

We report on the transmission properties of the omega (Ω) type metamaterials. Transmission through the periodic Ω-only and Ω-wire metamaterials are studied experimentally and numerically. A resonance band gap is observed for the periodic Ω medium around the resonance frequency of the single Ω unit cell. A transmission band is observed below the resonance band gap, when the periodic Ω structure is embedded in a negative permittivity medium composed of thin metallic wire arrays. We also studied the effect of periodicity on the transmission spectra of Ω type metamaterials.
