Abstract


We show that by curving fluid perforations within a solid with proper control of phase delay, a two dimensional acoustic metamaterial with extreme indices can be constructed. It can be used to achieve a variety of wave manipulations including negative refraction in the effective medium regime and tunneling with a density-near-zero material.
