ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVE PROPAGATION WITH NEGATIVE PHASE VELOCITY IN REGULAR BLACK HOLES

Received: April 24, 2012
We discuss the propagation of electromagnetic plane waves with negative phase velocity in regular black holes. For this purpose, we consider the Bardeen model as a nonlinear magnetic monopole and the Bardeen model coupled to nonlinear electrodynamics with a cosmological constant. It turns out that the region outside the event horizon of each regular black hole does not support negative phase velocity propagation, while its possibility in the region inside the event horizon is discussed.
