Modeling of tunneling times in anisotropic non-magnetic metamaterials
MetadataShow full item record
Tunneling times in an anisotropic structure composed of alternately placed layers of two linear, dispersive and absorptive materials are analyzed in this paper. For such a structure, a general expression for the relation between the two most common tunneling time definitions, namely the dwell time and the group delay, is obtained. Numerical calculations are performed for a new type of semiconductor metamaterial. The results show a peak position frequency mismatch between the dwell time and the group delay, and between the dwell time and the absorption.
