Total Reflection Investigation with Negative and Near Zero Magnetic Permeability along the Visible Light Range and All Negative Values of Magnetic Permeability along the Blue Light Range with Total Reflection

Hanan ali


In this study, total reflection through a slab of vacuum and mercury nano-particle is achieved with negative and near zero magnetic permeability. It is shown that this new design of metamaterial act as an excellent reflector which could be used in many applications. This paper also shows that this optical mirror has negative values for magnetic permeability in the blue range of the visible light and total reflection in this range is achieved.
