Abstract

In this paper the problem of propagating wave to surface wave conversion by using metasurfaces is studied theoretically and numerically. We consider the problem of determining the electromagnetic properties of an inhomogeneous lossless boundary which would fully convert an incident plane wave into a surface wave propagating along the boundary. An approximate design solution, which satisfies the energy conservation law and produces a slowly growing surface wave, is discussed. The results of the study are relevant for the future development of such devices as leaky-wave antennas and can potentially lead to other novel applications.
