5(d), we can see that the uniform current flows around the SRR loop, which further demonstrates that the residual electric dipole moment in the SRR's cell is effectively suppressed and the radiation losses of the SRR are greatly reduced.
Note that the residual electric dipole moment on the SRR loop leads to the high radiation losses.
The results obtained above are straightforwardly extended to the case, where the electric dipole moment p0 of a compact bunch of charges is not equal to zero.
