Abstract


We show that electromagnetic waves in systems containing layers of right- and left-handed dielectrics obey, under some conditions, the same equations as the charge carriers in graphene superlattices created by inhomogeneous electrostatic potential. This analogy allows better understanding of unique transport properties of graphene and also offers possibilities to reproduce these properties in light tailoring photonic devices based on metamaterials.
