Abstract

We report on the application of a magnetic composite metamaterial. The magnetic response of the metamaterial in the light region of the spectrum can realize the Brewster condition for s -polarized light. By introducing a uniaxial magnetic metamaterial consisting of stacked two-dimensional arrays of split-ring resonators, the Brewster effect can be produced for both p and s polarizations simultaneously. We also propose optical components that can interconnect two materials of different refractive index and that can transmit the light across the material boundary without any reflection at the interface.
