Abstract

Wave propagation in thin nanostructured films in the low frequency regime was studied. By means of a two-scale analysis, the medium can be homogenized, i.e. described by effective electromagnetic parameters. The effective permeability and permittivity were obtained from a set of partial differential equations. A numerical approach based on the Fourier Modal Method was devised in order to solve these equations.
