(a) A simple design of the split-ring resonator (SRR). The metal ring provides the magnetic field response while the dielectric gap provides the capacitive response and together SRR demonstrates a distinct resonance response referred to as the artificial magnetic response. (b) The lump element equivalent circuit model for the SRR’s artificial magnetic response.
