In the first research group, scientists stacked alternating layers of silver and nonconducting magnesium fluoride and cut nanoscale-sized fishnet patterns into the layer to create a bulk optical metamaterial (Figure 3). Each pair of conducting and nonconducting layers forms a circuit. Stacking the layers creates a series of circuits that respond in opposition to that of the magnetic field from the incoming light.
