Title: Loop-wire medium for investigating plasmons at microwave frequencies

Abstract

We present numerical simulations and microwave measurements on a loop-wire structure that acts as an effective medium exhibiting a well-defined bulk plasma frequency in the microwave regime, with an effective negative dielectric function below this plasma frequency. The dependence of this plasmonic response on the self-inductance of the constituent wire elements is made explicit. A finite structure, approximately spherical, composed of this inductive medium is studied, and reveals subwavelength surface plasmon resonances below the bulk plasma frequency.
