Abstract: The need for reducing or even compensating of the losses is a key challenge for metamaterial technologies. One promising way of overcoming the losses is based on incorporating a gain material into the metamaterial structure. Therefore, it is of vital importance to understand the mechanism of the coupling between metamaterials and the gain medium. In addition, these ideas can be used in plasmonics to incorporate gain to obtain new nano-plasmonic lasers. We will present our FDTD numerical new results with gain in metamaterials. In this talk, we address the question of what is a good conductor for use in metamaterials and in plasmonics.
