Comment: From the paper below, I’ve added many rows of wires to that one row, and changed the material from gold to silver, and calculated the refractive index, which connects with the 1999 paper. The trend in this, and the two papers below was unintentional, but odd.

Comment: The best type is an array of wires spaced less than a wavelength apart. So I’ve added a one-row wire array to the air [pdf].
