Paper Abstract

Slowing light has arisen increasing attentions due to its applications for optical switching, optical hard disk and memories. Among several systems to potentially demonstrate the slowing light effect, such as electromagnetic induced transparency (EIT), metamaterial analogue EIT, left-handed waveguides, foremost is the three-layered left-handed waveguides (LHWG). Therefore, by using a negative refraction index medium (NRIM) operated at multiple-angle incidences to construct an LHWG, herein we experimentally demonstrate the effect of slowing light by activating the oscillatory mode at certain frequency. Our results confirmed by introducing E-field (or H-field) distribution and power flow recording in CST simulation software.
