Despite the recent development and interest in the photonics of metallic wire structures, the relatively simple concepts and physics often remain obscured or poorly explained to those who do t specialize in the field. Electromagnetic Behaviour of Metallic Wire Structures provides a clear and coherent guide to understanding these phemena without excessive numerical calculations. Including both background material and detailed derivations of the various different formulae applied, Electromagnetic Behaviour of Metallic Wire Structures describes how to extend basic circuit theory relating to voltages, currents, and resistances of metallic wire networks to include situations where the currents are longer spatially uniform along the wire. This lays a foundation for a deeper understanding of the many new phemena observed in meta-electromagnetic materials. Examples of applications are included to support this new approach making Electromagnetic Behaviour of Metallic Wire Structures a comprehensive and self-contained volume suitable for use by specialists, n-specialist, researchers and professionals in other relevant fields and even students.
Siu-Tat Chui was born in Hong Kong, China on April 20, 1949. He went to McGill University in 1967 and obtained his B.S. degree with first class honors in physics in 1969. After that he went to Princeton University and obtained a Ph.D. in physics in 1972. He remained an instructor at Princeton from 1972-73. He was a member of the Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories from 1973 to 1975, an Assistant Professor at SUNY-Albany from 1975 to 1979 and joined the Bartol Research Foundation, University of Delaware in 1979 and is currently professor. He is married and have two sons, one of whom is an artist. He hopes the income from this book can partly support his artist son. Lei Zhou was born in Shandong, China on July 12, 1972. He went to Fudan University in 1988, and received his B.S. degree in physics in 1992 and his Ph.D. degree in physics in 1997. After that, he went to Institute for Material Research, Tohoku University, Japan, for postdoctoral research. In 2000, he left Japan for Hong Kong and became a visiting scholar in Physics Department, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. In 2004, he joined Physics Department, Fudan University, China, and is currently a professor.
