Abstract

An InP-based Mach–—Zehnder interferometer combined with a metamaterial layer consisting of a split-ring resonator array was constructed to measure the complex permeability of the metamaterial. At a wavelength of 1.5 μm, the metamaterial showed non-unity relative permeability induced by magnetic interaction with propagating light in the device. This method of measurement would be useful to determine constitutive parameters in such waveguide-based photonic devices, allowing us to design photonic integrated circuits that make use of metamaterials.
