Abstract

We demonstrate a new class of "coherent" metamaterials, where a regular ensemble of meta-molecules shows a collective, i.e. coherent, narrow band resonant response, while disordering the ensemble leads to broadening and eventually disappearance of the resonance. We draw parallels between the observed collective behavior of meta-molecules and the Mossbauer effect and notice certain remarkable similarities with the phase transitions of ferromagnetic systems.
