Abstract

This article reports the studies of the effect on waves propagating in silver metal due to L-nihility (ε = 0,μ = 1). For this purpose, a plane wave is considered to be incident from air to half space of silver metal (z > 0), and the response of metal is observed at the L-nihility frequency which falls within the optical frequency range. It is shown that no counterposition, negative phase velocity and orthogonal phase velocity are exhibited by the silver metal at L-nihility frequency. Phase velocity is plotted against incident angles and the corresponding effects on the Minkowski momentum density are noticed. Numerical results are compared with those of the optical refraction in silver metal, and interesting points are highlighted.
