Abstract


In this paper we propose to investigate a metasurface designed, fabricated and characterized for an operation at microwave frequencies. A good quantitative agreement has been observed between simulations performed using finite element method-based commercial code HFSS and experiments made using a free space setup, based on vector network analyzer and horn antennas. Our proposed metasurface has further been validated as a Partially Reflecting Surface in a Fabry-Perot cavity, with the aim to enhance the directivity of conventional microstrip patch antennas.
