Abstract

We propose a sandwiched transparent epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) metamaterial screen to release the obliquely incident electromagnetic fields. More specifically, the transmission properties through ENZ metamaterials are investigated when incorporated with an interlayer of a meta-surface having periodic complementary spiral-resonator-matrixes. We show that both TE- and TM-polarized electromagnetic waves are capable of penetrating the ENZ metamaterials under a wide-angle range of illuminations, and the greatly enhanced transmissions are turning out to be frequency dispersionless for different polarized electromagnetic fields with different incident angles. Our design, breaking the notion of the angular filter of ENZ metamaterials, should readily be applied to other extreme-parameter materials and pave the way to explore more unexpected transmission properties of these metamaterials.
