We report analytical and numerical studies of the effect of the separation distance between zeros of dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability on the phenomena of resonant absorption and anomalous field enhancement in transition metamaterials. Our studies indicate that these phenomena are robust and strongly polarization-dependent in the presence of the spatial shift between these points. These results are likely to be important for future fundamental and applied studies in the areas of transformation, polarization, and nonlinear optics in metamaterials.
