A method is introduced to measure the effective constitutive parameters of metamaterials having negative permittivity, negative permeability, or negative permeability and negative permittivity simultaneously. The method is based on the strip line topology, thus offering low cost and low setup complexity in comparison to other methods. The method proposed here is validated by numerically simulating the measurement setup while using different types of metamaterials. To validate the method experimentally, a metamaterial having negative permeability over a band of frequencies is characterized. Good agreement is obtained between the experimental and numerical results.
