Metasurface Near-field Measurements with Incident Field Reconstruction using a Single Horn Antenna

  title={Metasurface Near-field Measurements with Incident Field Reconstruction using a Single Horn Antenna},
  author={Ville Tiukuvaara and Kan Wang and Tom J. Smy and Shulabh Gupta},
A simple method of superimposing multiple near field scans using a single horn antenna in different configurations to characterize a planar electromagnetic metasurface is proposed and numerically demonstrated. It can be used to construct incident fields for which the metasurface is originally designed for, which may otherwise be difficult or not possible to achieve in practice. While this method involves additional effort by requiring multiple scans, it also provides flexibility for the…

Polarization Considerations for Scalar Huygens Metasurfaces and Characterization for 2-D Refraction
Transmitarrays and transmissive metasurfaces must efficiently couple incident power to the transmitted beam. Inefficiency is manifested in sidelobe levels, reflections, and insertion loss. The
Surface Susceptibility Synthesis of Metasurface Skins/Holograms for Electromagnetic Camouflage/Illusions
It is shown that to recreate the reference desired fields everywhere in space using a closed metasurface hologram/skin, an internal illumination must be applied inside the hologram, in addition to the applied external illumination fields.
Averaged transition conditions for electromagnetic fields at a metafilm
This paper derives generalized sheet transition conditions (GSTCs) for the average electromagnetic fields across a surface distribution of electrically small scatterers characterized by electric and

Design, concepts, and applications of electromagnetic metasurfaces
Abstract The paper overviews our recent work on the synthesis of metasurfaces and related concepts and applications. The synthesis is based on generalized sheet transition conditions (GSTCs) with a
Quasi-optical techniques
The basic theory of quasi-optical Gaussian beam propagation and beam transformation by simple optical elements is summarized, and coupling to and between Gaussian beams is briefly discussed.
Spacetime Metamaterials—Part I: General Concepts
The fundamental physical phenomena occurring in spacetime systems, such as frequency transitions, nonreciprocity, Fizeau dragging, bianisotropy transformation, and superluminality, allowed when the medium moves perpendicularly to the direction of the wave are described.
Wireless Communications Through Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces
The fundamental differences with other technologies, the most important open research issues to tackle, and the reasons why the use of reconfigurable intelligent surfaces necessitates to rethink the communication-theoretic models currently employed in wireless networks are elaborated.
ABCD transfer matrices and paraxial ray tracing for elliptic and hyperbolic lenses and mirrors
A method is introduced for evaluating the ABCD transfer matrices for paraxial rays refracted/reflected by lenses/mirrors with elliptic or hyperbolic surfaces, which relies on the use of certain cusp
