Abstract — Metamaterials are artificial engineered media that enable tailored interactions with electromagnetic waves. The design flexibility of superconducting thin-film resonators and Josephson circuits allows for utilizing small structures down to the nanoscal while maintaining low loss properties, very strong and well-controlled nonlinearity, and frequency tunability in the microwave and mm-wave frequency ranges. An interesting spin-off here is going to be quantum metamaterials comprised of arrays of superconducting qubits.
Keywords (Index Terms) — Metamaterials, meta-atoms, Josephson junctions, SQUIDs, qubits, superconducting resonators, cloaking.
