Abstract

The existence of passive trans-vacuum-speed metamaterials, in which the speed of light is greater than its speed in vacuum was demonstrated. The TVS metamaterial was designed using a two-time-derivative Lorentz material model. Analytical and numerical results for the propagation of plane waves in a 2TDLM TVS medium were used to validate the TVS properties. A transmission line realization of the dispersive 2TDLM TVS medium was established. A practical, frequency-independent transmission line TVS MTM design was extracted and validated numerically.
