J Infrared Milli Terahz Waves (2017) 38:1031–1033 DOI 10.1007/s10762-017-0425-7 Editorial Introduction to the Special Issue: Terahertz Metamaterials and Photonic Crystals Ibraheem Al-Naib · Withawat Withayachumnankul Received: 10 July 2017 / Accepted: 11 July 2017 / Published online: 26 July 2017 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2017 The dawn of this century saw an emerging field of engineered materials called metamaterials. The concept promises a great degree of freedom for wave manip- ulation with these artificial materials across the electromagnetic spectrum. In the last decade, there has been a rapid progress in this field towards many applications. Underlying those applications are metamaterial-based components such as filters, absorbers, antenna structures, sensors, and high-frequency modulators. For terahertz (THz) science and technology, these metamaterials have been at the core, as various functionalities cannot be derived from natural materials with relatively weak electro- magnetic responses. Motivated by this rapid development, this special issue features some latest progresses in terahertz metamaterials and photonic crystals. It consists of ten invited articles, the content of which is briefly outlined below. These contributions represent some of the ongoing research in this area. 1. Tailoring terahertz propagation by phase and amplitude control in metasur- faces by J. Zheng, X.
