  author={Stewart Pearson and Parinaz Naseri and Sean Victor Hum},
Electromagnetic metasurfaces have attracted significant interest recently due to their low profile and advantageous applications. Practically, many metasurface designs start with a set of constraints for the radiated far-field, such as main-beam direction(s) and side lobe levels, and end with a non-uniform physical structure for the surface. This problem is quite challenging, since the required tangential field transformations are not completely known when only constraints are placed on the… 



A Combined Machine-Learning / Optimization-Based Approach for Inverse Design of Nonuniform Bianisotropic Metasurfaces

This paper proposes an end-to-end systematic and efficient approach where the designer inputs high-level far-field constraints such as nulls, sidelobe levels, and main beam level(s); and a 3-layer nonuniform passive, lossless, omega-type bianisotropic electromagnetic metasurface design to satisfy them is returned.
