Abstract

In this Letter, numerical and experimental studies for the spoof-anapole effect are presented. Different from the anapole modes, when electric and toroidal dipole intensities are minimized, the spoof-anapole effect can be generated. The spoof-anapole effect can reduce the radiation losses with a high $Q$-factor. The concept is valid in various frequency bands from microwave range for millimeter-sized objects to visible range for nanoparticles. The spoof-anapole modes are first experimentally realized in microwave metamaterials. Almost perfect spoof-anapole behavior is observed, which produces an extremely high $Q$-factor at the resonance frequency. The experimental results agree well with the analytical ones and pave way to excite the non-radiating electromagnetic sources.
