Abstract

A tunable metasurface composed of multiple resonant units is proposed, with each unit containing a block of SrTiO3 ferroelectric and a periodical copper-wire structure. The local transmission coefficient of the metasurface is controlled by voltagetuning the permittivity of SrTiO3 in each resonant unit. The function of this tunable metasurface is demonstrated by simulating beam steering at the angles of 30˚ and 14.47˚, respectively; as well as beam focusing at the focal lengths of 2λ0 and 4λ0, respectively.
