We investigate the optical properties of a self-assembled three-dimensional metamaterial consisting of novel carbon allotrope intercalated with gold-silver alloy nanoparticles. For our experimental study we use a microscopic Müller matrix measurement technique. The metamaterial exhibits strong linear birefringence in the visible spectral range as a direct consequence of the crystal structure of the carbon matrix, holding an immense potential for future applications.
