MEMS integrated metamaterial structure having variable resonance for RF applications
Metamaterial structures for RF applications are becoming essential in the race to reduce the footprint of antenna and components necessary for RF systems. Metamaterials provide a viable option to engineer structures from commonly used materials and processes to reduce the weight and size requirements for systems that normally operate at ¼ wavelength or greater in size for optimal performance. The Split ring resonators (SRR) first developed by Pendry, et al., has proven to be a viable component necessary to create negative index material structures. A fabricated SRR has a specific
