Helical Metamaterial Elements as RLC Circuit


Article Preview

In the present paper, we study electromagnetic properties of single-turn, double-turn and DNA-like helices in microwave range. In particular, we determine the magnetic flux density in the center of the inclusions and their inductance and capacitance. In this paper we have numerically obtained the magnetic field of different kinds of helices: the single-turn helical element, the double-turn helical element, the half-turn helical element and DNA-like helical element. For these helical elements the inductance, capacitance and Q factor were calculated numerically.
