Abstract

We study the spectral response of optical metamaterials consisting of gold split-ring resonators. We utilize reflection spectroscopy in the near infrared region at normal incidence in the experiments. Our theoretical modeling is based on rigorous diffraction theory. We perform a comprehensive analysis of the dependence of the features of both the electric and the oscillating-circuit resonance on the geometry of the metamaterial. We show that theory and experiment are in good agreement.
