Abstract


Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to provide properties which "may not be readily available in nature". Here we report our  preliminary results on the design, fabrication and characterization of new metamaterial optical devices whose main characteristics is the possibility to tune the refractive index by an extrernal stymulus (applied voltage). The device concept is based on the integration of an elettrooptic element into the structure of the metamaterial membrane.
