Title

Loss Enhanced Transmission and Collimation in Anisotropic Epsilon-Near-Zero Metamaterials

Abstract

We verify the extraordinary transmission enhancement and collimation induced by the material loss in anisotropic epsilon-near-zero metamaterials, and reveal the physical mechanism of this exotic electromagnetic phenomenon via the iso-frequency contour analysis. In addition, we demonstrate the possibility in realization of such loss enhanced transmission of Gaussian beam in realistic silver-germanium multilayered structures by applying full-wave numerical simulations. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.
