Random composites with nickel networks hosted randomly in porous alumina are proposed to realize double negative materials. The random composite for DNMs (RC-DNMs) can be prepared by typical processing of material, which makes it possible to explore new DNMs and potential applications, and to feasibly tune their electromagnetic parameters by controlling their composition and microstructure. Hopefully, various new RC-DNMs with improved performance will be proposed in the future.
