Cherenkov radiation in anisotropic double-negative metamaterials.

Author information

  • 1School of Physical Electronics, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China.


We theoretically study reversed Cherenkov radiation (CR) in anisotropic double-negative metamaterials (DNMs) in general, and particularly in detail for one of the most practical cases, i.e., CR in a waveguide partially filled with anisotropic DNMs. The theory presented here provides a theoretical basis for possible experiments and potential applications. As an example, we discuss the physical properties of CR and the potential applications such as particle detectors and high-power sources.
