We propose a surface-wave dispersion retrieval method and synthesis technique that applies to bianisotropic metasurfaces that are embedded in symmetric or asymmetric environments. Specifically, we use general zero-thickness sheet transition conditions to relate the propagation constants of surface-wave modes to the bianisotropic susceptibility components of the metasurface, which can themselves be directly related to its scattering parameters. It is then possible to either obtain the… 

Surface Wave Propagation on Bianisotropic Metasurfaces by Using Electric and Magnetic Polarizabilities

This paper studies the existence of a surface wave on bianisotropic metasurfaces (BMS) by using electric and magnetic polarizabilities, a method based on surface polarizations, to extract the dispersion equation by using the polarizability.
