This paper proposes the study and implementation of metamaterials in the electromagnetic nondestructive examination; these materials can serve as electromagnetic flux concentrators in radiofrequency range. Thus, the using of a new type of metamaterials, namely conical Swiss roll has been proposed. As direct application, Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) plates with and without delaminations, created by impacts with low energy, were examined with the electromagnetic transducers with metamaterial lens. The characteristics of carbon fibers woven structure became visible and the delaminations are clearly emphasized.
