The angle-dependent properties of wave reflection in the lossy single-negative (SNG) materials are theoretically investigated. A model structure of SNG bilayer consisting of a lossy epsilon-negative (ENG) material and a lossy mu-negative (MNG) is considered in this work. The wave properties are investigated based on the calculated reflectance for the s wave (transversal electric wave) and the p wave (transversal magnetic wave) in addition to the degree of polarization. It is found that the angle-dependent reflectance of p wave is larger than that of s wave, which is contrary to the usual material with both positive epsilon and positive mu. The effects of losses coming from the.
