We propose a low-cost reconfigurable metasurface transmitter to implement generalized polarization-space modulation (GPSM) that has been proposed for next-generation wireless communications. Unlike conventional multiple-input multiple-output GPSM, our electromagneticallycompliant, reduced form-factor design using Barium-Strontium-Titanate film yields more than two polarization states. Full-wave simulations show our optimized design achieves 0.08-0.95 polarization conversion ratio with 5…
