Abstract

In the interest of transparency, MRS is a co-publisher of this title. However, this review was requested and reviewed by an independent Book Review Board.

This book is a unique part of a series of “emerging theories and technologies in metamaterials.” This series provides systematic coverage of new and emerging topics in metamaterials, which is a timely elaboration of metamaterials for scientists, engineers, and students. The presentation of recent and desirable details is given in a logical and systematic manner in six sections. It encompasses the basics and present day technological updates that show how the experimental ideas of metamaterials applications can be realized.

Theoretical concepts and solid-state physics-based details of metamaterials are introduced in Section 1, which highlights the desired details on metamaterials, plasmonics, and spoof surface plasmons (SSPs). An in-depth section on theoretical formalism is given in Section 2. These two sections provide the background necessary for understanding the subject.

Sections 3 and 4 provide a thorough description of SSPs in flat geometries, providing an understanding of waveguide-related SSPs. Section 3 focuses on the basic interpretation of SSPs on various flat configurations viz. flat surfaces (straight/slanted groves/square dimples), perforated slabs, and related SSP metamaterial parameters. Further, it provides information on the preparation of flat SSP metamaterials. The approach discussed in the section enables the reader to interpret various configurations and applications of plasmonic metamaterials.

Section 4 elaborates on the theoretical aspects of SSP waveguides, with a focus on cylindrical geometries and experimental work reported in the literature. It directs the reader to correlate the theory of metamaterials to cases close to the application of SSP metamaterials. It describes cases such as corrugated channel waveguides, wedges, Domino surface plasmons, and conformal surface plasmons. Section 5 is a larger section that explains the localized surface plasmons that can be observed by way of nanostructuring of metallic systems, which leads to experimental realization of any kind of application. The book teaches how metallo-dielectric disks and magnetic localized surface plasmons in pure metallic structures can be exploited for possible applications of metamaterials. The book concludes with Section 6, which summarizes the content.

This book clearly demonstrates the status and importance of metamaterials by covering theoretical and experimental aspects of this new technology. The figures and equations are appropriately chosen and displayed to provide insights into various aspects pertaining to the subject. All recent work has been suitably cited via references in the field. This will be a valuable book to readers who are looking for concise recent information on this new and upcoming field. This would be a useful book to inspire and provide desirable details to scientists and students interested in metamaterials.
