The passage of light through some of these materials is governed by the same equations that describe space and time.
Their passage through the golden part of the metamaterial is described in accordance with the same laws that work in the Universe, where there are two spatial and one temporal dimensions. The laws that work in the Universe with one spatial and two temporal dimensions are suitable for describing the movement of plasmons through plastic.
When scientists placed a plastic lattice on top of a gold film, in the universe they simulated, the temporal dimension turned out to be perpendicular to the spatial dimension, and the passage of plasmons through the entire structure turned out to be equivalent to the end of time.
Earlier, another team of researchers using metamaterials created in the laboratory a model of a microwave black hole – an object that absorbs all waves of the corresponding frequency range that hit it.
