Abstract: Hyperbolic metamaterials create artificial optical anisotropy using metallic wires suspended in a dielectric medium, or alternating layers of a metal and dielectric. Here we fabricated ZnO/Al:ZnO (AZO) multilayers by the RF magnetron sputtering deposition technique. Our fabricated multilayers satisfy the conditions required for a type I hyperbolic metamaterial. The optical response of individual AZO and ZnO films, as well as the multilayered film were investigated via angular transmittance and spectroscopic e…
