Wave Properties of Metamaterials


Fractal pattern analysis is performed for aperiodicmultilayer systems with metamaterials. Morphological features of pattern formation in optical characteristics of structures with different geometry are revealed having regard to the manifestation of the phase-compensation effect and presence of metamaterial layers.
