Metamaterial Inclusions Based on Grid-Graph Hamiltonian Paths.
This article deals with a study of novel classes of metamaterial
inclusions based on space-filling curves. The graph–theoretic
Hamiltonian-path (HP) concept is exploited to construct a fairly broad
class of space-filling curve geometries that include as special cases the
well-known Hilbert an Peano curves whose application to metamaterial
inclusions has recently been proposed. In this framework, the basic
properties of HP are briefly reviewed, and a full-wave study of the
electromagnetic properties of representative grid-graph HP geometries
is carried out. Applications to metamaterial inclusions are explored,
with focus on artificial magnetic conductors with reduced
