Abstract


We investigate the use of metamaterial resonators as elements that enable control of surface electromagnetic waves. Plasmons propagate on a planar Goubau line (PGL), launched with a coplanar waveguide coupler. Metamaterial elements are designed to only absorb energy of the propagating mode and yield narrow-band resonances with relatively high quality factors.
