This book will shape the course of electromagnetics research for decades to come. Fourteen leading researchers from five countries reveal their latest research results in detail and review parallel developments. The topics discussed, though unconventional today, are destined to attract great attention as shrinking device sizes make electromagnetic effects ever more important.

These topics include the rotation of polarization of electric waves by a twisted structure; homogenization of linear bianistotropic composite materials; novel free-space techniques to characterize complex mediums; sculptured thin films; electrodynamic properties of carbon nanotubes; and more.

Electromagnetic Fields in Unconventional Materials and Structures:

  • Focuses on geometry in both large and small scales
  • Provides a blueprint for electromagnetics research at the turn of the century
  • Features new results, comments, and prognostications on 21st century research
  • Includes more than 150 illustrations as well as hundreds of charts, tables, and references
