This paper proposes a variational approach to study the asymptotic behaviour of the magnetic induction response of composite materials with a laminate microstructure whose components have negative magnetic permeability and different positive electric permittivity. A procedure to compute explicitly the effective electric permittivity of composites made by alternate layers of two single-negative materials is presented.
