    We investigate the effects of disorder on metamaterial samples composed of split ring resonators with randomly introduced variation in their geometrical dimensions. We demonstrate that disorder broadens the negative permeability band and introduces effective losses into the system. Transmission measurements on samples with varying degrees of disorder are found to be in excellent agreement with predictions based on standard homogenization theories. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
