Abstract: It has been shown that transverse electric plane waves reflect from certain types of metamaterials with a unit magnitude reflection coefficient (Smith and Schurig, Phys Rev Lett 90 &899;2003), 077405-1–077405-4).Here we investigate the reflection of transverse magnetic plane waves using a Hertzian dipole over a semi-infinite slab of metamaterial, which is used as a ground plane. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
