Metamaterials at zero frequency.

We investigate the problem of designing metamaterial structures which operate at very low frequencies. As an example, we consider the case of a DC magnetic cloak, which requires a variable, anisotropic magnetic permeability with both paramagnetic and diamagnetic components. We show that a structure based on superconducting components is the key to diamagnetism at low frequencies, and present a metamaterial design which meets the requirements of the cloak.
