ABSTRACT

Negative refraction performance of Au nanowires arrays-based metamaterials was explored by means of finite difference and time domain (FDTD) algorithm for the purpose of providing flexible design freedom of the negative index metamaterials (NIMs) working in visible regime from nanofabrication point of view. Tuning performance of the nanowires for negative refraction was analyzed by use of varying refractive index of filling materials among the metallic nanowires. Computational numerical simulation and analyses were carried out. The performance of negative refraction was compared by optimization of the structures. By optimizing the nanowires radius, E-field intensity was calculated in the case that the refractive index of filling material is changeable. The calculated refraction angles illustrate a relationship between the refraction angle and the index of filling material. Our computational results demonstrate that effective value of the negative refractive index strongly depends on the refractive index of the filling material when other parameters are fixed.
