Metamaterials are metal–dielectric composites structured on the microscale or nanoscale. For electromagnetic waves with relatively large wavelengths, the composite structure acts as an array of artificial atoms, giving rise to unique and exotic electromagnetic properties. This has made metamaterials a very exciting and promising research area, yielding many interesting and unique phenomena. However, the small features required create challenges in the types and volumes of metamaterials that can be made. This chapter outlines the use of fibre drawing as a metamaterials ...
