Abstract

The propagation of electromagnetic waves in DNG media was studied from both analytical and numerical points of view. Analytical continuation based choices of the square roots associated with the index of refraction and the wave impedance were introduced. The wave physics associated with each of these choices was clarified. Results for the 1D plane wave scattering from a DNG interface and a DNG slab and the 2D line source cylindrical wave excitation of the DNG slab were detailed. Numerical FDTD simulations of these 1D and 2D cases were provided.
