Abstract

For impenetrable electromagnetic surfaces, a metasurface design approach for perfect control of the reflection phenomena using gradient anisotropic tensor surface impedance is presented. It utilizes a set of orthogonally polarized auxiliary surface waves to create pointwise reactive impedance characteristics by channeling power along the tangential direction of the surface in the near zone in a carefully designed manner. The propagating incident and reflected fields do not interfere with the surface waves due to the polarization orthogonality. Design examples of an anomalous reflector and a power splitter for an incident plane wave are presented and numerically verified. Realization possibilities using an array of rotated metallic resonators on a thin grounded dielectric substrate are discussed.
