An electromagnetic trinity from "negative permittivity" and "negative permeability"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

61 Scopus citations


An electromagnetic trinity comprising vacuum, anti-vacuum, and nihility is postulated - after making use of materials with "negative permittivity" and "negative permeability" - to illuminate the structure of electromagnetic theory, at least insofar as the relationship of phase velocity with Poynting vector is concerned.
