ABSTRACT

In the field of electromagnetism, artificially constructed metamaterial has opened a new hope for the researchers. Metamaterial is developed artificially and not found available in nature. This composite material shows more irregular properties than the natural materials. Negative refractive index (NRI) is one of the exceptional properties of it. Therefore, many researchers have started investigation with this material. Some metamaterials found in literature have NRI properties but very few of them are found operating simultaneously in C-and X-band. In this study, a new combined WU-shaped NRI metamaterial unit cell is presented. Here, three different substrate materials have been adopted for sensitivity analysis. The used substrate materials are FR-4, Rogers RT6006 and Rogers RT6010 and their permittivity are 4.3, 6.15 and 10.2 respectively. Finite integration technique based numerical tool is adopted for all analyses. The electromagnetic properties are determined by Nicolson-Ross-Weir (NRW) method. Perfect electric-magnetic boundary condition is applied for simulation. The metamaterial unit cell exhibits negative refractive index (NRI) within C-band and X-band for all these substrate materials. C-and X-band are widely used for satellite and long distance communication. Moreover, the proposed material shows better effective medium ratio with increasing relative permittivity which ensures the materials proper operation and sensitivity for any applications.
