A Fundamental Model Methodology for the Analysis, Design and Fabrication of a Narrow Transparency Window in a Bulk Meta-Material

Abstract The optical valley of water, where water is transparent only in the visible range, is a fascinating phenomenon and cannot be modeled by conventional dielectric material modeling. While dielectric properties of materials can be modeled as a sum of Lorentz or Debye simple harmonic oscillators, water is the exception. In 1992 Diaz and Alexopoulos published a causal and passive circuit model that predicted the window of water by adding a “zero shunt” circuit in parallel with every Debye and Lorentz circuit branch. Other than the Diaz model, extensive literature survey yielded no universal dielectric material model that included water or offered an explanation for this window phenomenon. A hybrid phenomenological model of water, proposed by... (more)
