Title: OPTICAL MATERIAL, OPTICAL ELEMENT, AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING SAME
Abstract:
Disclosed are an optical material which has a relative permeability different from 1 to light having a wavelength in, for example, the infrared region or shorter than the infrared region and is stable in structure, and a liquid and a solid (optical element) using the optical material. The optical material is a powder (12) used as a component of a liquid or solid illuminated with an illuminating light. Each of a large number of resonant elements (14) constituting the powder (12) is produced by covering the whole surface of a split ring resonator (16) which is made from a conductor and which has a width approximately equal to or shorter than the wavelength of the illuminating light with a protective layer (18) comprising a circular disc-shaped insulator.
