Metasurfaces are generally designed by placing scatterers in periodic or pseudo-periodic grids. We propose and discuss design rules for functional metasurfaces with randomly placed anisotropic elements. By analyzing the focusing performance of random metasurface lenses as a function of their density and the density of the phase-maps used to design them, we find that the performance of 1D metasurfaces is mostly governed by their density while 2D metasurfaces strongly depend on both the density…

Local phase method for designing and optimizing metasurface devices.

Quantifying the phase error of each element of the metasurfaces with the proposed local phase method paves the way to the design of highly efficient metasURface devices including, but not limited to, deflectors, high numerical aperture metasulface concentrators, lenses, cloaks, and modulators.

Metasurfaces are promising tools toward novel designs for flat optics applications. As such, their quality and tolerance to fabrication imperfections need to be evaluated with specific tools.

Random-phase metasurfaces at optical wavelengths

This work presents and exemplifies the statistical description of the far-field response, particularly highlighting how the response for polarised and unpolarised light might be alike or different depending on the correlation of scattering phases for two orthogonal polarisations.

We demonstrate a novel and simple approach to cloaking a scatterer on a ground plane. We use an extremely thin dielectric metasurface ({\lambda}/12) to reshape the wavefronts distorted by a scatterer

Progress in the optics of metasurfaces is reviewed and promising applications for surface-confined planar photonics components are discussed and the studies of new, low-loss, tunable plasmonic materials—such as transparent conducting oxides and intermetallics—that can be used as building blocks for metAsurfaces will complement the exploration of smart designs and advanced switching capabilities.

The concept presents the great advantages to be very general, scalable to all frequency domains and above all very robust to fluctuations induced by the tunable mechanism, as it is proved at microwave frequencies using electronically tunable patch reflectors.
