Abstract
The creation of electromagnetic metamaterials is an important activity. The latter should anticipate the kind of applications in which unique metamaterial behaviour can appear. This paper addresses nonlinear wave phenomena in both the strongly and the weakly nonlinear regimes. It inevitably involves novel nonlinear guided waves and solitonic beam activities. In this context, some magnetooptic control is introduced. In addition, the kind of structural complexity that can lead to trapped rainbows will be briefly examined. Finally, some aspects are made of vortex control in a diffraction-managed metamaterial is presented.
