Figure 1: (a) Regular and (b) laterally (along direction) random positioning of the meta-atoms in a metamaterial. Plane wave propagation is in direction, and electric field polarization coincides with the axis and with the elongation of the nano wires. Note that only one layer, which the metamaterial consists of, is shown in the figure.
