The review of works on studying artificial media with negative refractive index and their unique application is given. We make a point of negative refraction and lens effects in plan-parallel layers of such metamaterials. The properties and stability conditions of waveguide modes in layered structures and open cavities are considered in terms of the effective diffraction and dispersion lengths.
