    Artificial electromagnetic structures have significantly broadened the range of wave propagation phenomena available. In particular, it has been shown that metamaterials can be constructed for which the index-of-refraction is negative over a finite band of frequencies. In this paper, we present the design, fabrication and characterization of a metamaterial that exhibits negative refraction. The metamaterial design we explore is an Isotropic in the plane of propagation. Based on our analysis and supporting simulations and measurements, we demonstrate that for the geometry considered, the anisotropic metamaterial has the identical negative refraction properties as would an isotropic negative index metamaterial.
