Abstract:
Perfect electromagnetic conductor (PEMC) is a novel concept in electromagnetic fields of interesting properties and many potential applications. This paper introduces a new technique to design an artificial surface that has equivalent PEMC properties. The proposed PEMC boundary is based on a periodic structure composed of two conducting patches on a grounded dielectric slab. One of them is embedded inside the substrate and the other lies on the surface of the substrate. A conducting via is used to connect the two patches. In the resulting PEMC boundary, the polarization of the reflected wave is controlled by the tilting angle between the two patches.
