During the past ten years, a great interest in the research of metamaterials has been observed. Metamaterials are artificially invented materials that show the properties which are not detected in naturally occurring materials. Metamaterials exhibits negative permittivity and/ or negative permeability. This paper presents a review of different types of metamaterials, their own unique properties and advantages.
