Title: Observation of Wakefield Generation in Left-Handed Band of Metamaterial-Loaded Waveguide

Abstract

We report on a design of a TM-mode based metamaterial-loaded waveguide. Network analyzer measurements demonstrated a left-handed propagation region for the TM11 mode at around 10 GHz. A beamline experiment was performed with the metamaterial-loaded waveguide. In this experiment, a 6 MeV electron beam passes through the waveguide and generates a wakefield, via the Cherenkov radiation mechanism. We detected a signal in the left-handed frequency band at 10 GHz. This is an indirect demonstration of reverse Cherenkov radiation as discussed in several papers. Cherenkov radiation in artificially constructed materials (metamaterials, MTM) can provide unusual, engineered features that can be advantageous for particle detector design.
