The detection of branded and unbranded chemical materials is essential for the quality control assessment. In this work, a metamaterial inspired sensor is designed and fabricated, which incorporates oval-shaped wing resonators, in order to use to detect branded and unbranded diesels in the X-band frequency region. The simulation studies were carried out by using the Computer Simulation Technology (CST) Microwave studio. A transmission line was introduced into the sensor design and genetic algorithm was used to optimize the proposed structure. Parametric study was investigated by changing the permittivity, permeability of the sensor layer, width of the transmission line, materials of the substrate layer, and width of the resonator. Results showed that different factors can be considered to sense the chemical materials including the shift in resonant frequency and amplitude variation in the reflection or transmission spectrum. It was found that the sensible variation in the transmission value is about -3.2 dB, which is superior to that reported in literature. It was concluded that the sensor is highly sensitive to distinguish the branded diesel from the unbranded one, which makes it viable for detecting fluidics in the chemical industry and medicine.
