Keywords: micro-array, negative refractive index material

In this paper we discuss in building a micro-arrayed negative refractive index material which enhances the energy transfer between a wireless transmitter and a receiver. We simulate and study the effects of introduction of negative index refractive materials of micro-array configuration between the transmitter and the receiver. The size, structure and physical parameters play an important role in efficiency and quantum of energy transfer. They have a significant effect on the transfer coefficient. Since the permittivity and permeability of the two media have different features, the component of the magnetic field changes when the observation point is moving towards the interface. This property and feature can be studied before optimizing the structure and physical nature of the system. Further the degree of anisotropy of the system has been discussed. The simulations are done using a finite element simulation tool. Some interesting results evolved as we introduce the negative refractive index material in the environment are discussed.
