Abstract
We review recent contributions to the homogenization theory of wire media and discuss a variety of applications at microwave and THz frequencies. The analysis is based on spatially dispersive homogenization models for unloaded and loaded wire media with additional boundary conditions derived for different interface scenarios. The applications include, but are not limited to, metamaterial-based antenna and waveguide technology, subwavelength imaging, super lenses, absorbers, and have been recently extended to carbon-based nanomaterials.
