Magnetoinductive waves propagating along a set of resonant metamaterial elements are studied under the condition when the wave travels round a closed circular path and the total phase shift is an integral multiple of 2 pi. The resonant frequency of the circulating wave is shown to be related to the resonant frequency of the element via the known dispersion relationship. The currents in the elements are determined with the aid of the impedance matrix when the excitation is by a rotating magnetic dipole located at the center of the structure. It is shown that the power taken out from one element in the loop may approach N times that from a single element, where N is the number of elements, provided the quality factor of the individual elements is sufficiently high and suitable modifications are made to nearby elements. Potential applications to magnetic resonance spectroscopy are discussed. (c) 2006 American Institute of Physics.
