Abstract

In this paper, chiral nihility based pressure, density, temperature and moisture content metamaterial sensor applications are investigated in detail. A "chiral nihility'' medium in which both the permittivity and the permeability tend to zero is investigated. Gammadion shaped resonators particularly designed for chiral nihility are introduced. Bandwidths and signal strengths show admissible results. Simulation and experimental results prove that chiral nihility occurred at the resonance frequencies when medium parameters are retrieved. The pressure and density sensor applications of the proposed sensor study are realized both numerically and experimentally, and the obtained results show good agreements with each other.
