Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aspects of symmetry cover a wide range of physical, chemistry, and biological topics: they include nonlinear optics, nanoparticles, gravitation, biopolymers, etc. Both microscopical and phenomenological aspects exist here. Particular attention will be devoted to phenomena that are forbidden by symmetry following the macroscopical approach and may be allowed following the microscopical theory. Particular attention will be devoted to incommensurate superstructures and other topics, where the generally adapted symmetry aspects will be significantly modified.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

In this work, a stratiform metamaterial is arranged as multiple periods of metal-dielectric symmetrical film stack to provide precise equivalent refractive index and admittance. There are multiple solutions of equivalent refractive index retrieved from the characteristic matrix of the film stack. The correct refractive index is derived by connecting different branches of solution at different ranges of wavelength or thickness of the dielectric layer. The refractive index of an Ag-TiO2 five-layered symmetrical film stack shown in previous work is demonstrated to be positive real instead of negative real. The associated type I iso-frequency curve supports negative refraction. In order to extend the operating wavelength of type I metamaterial, the number of the metal-dielectric symmetrical film stack is increased to reduce the thickness of the dielectric film to approach subwavelength requirement.
