Wide Band Low RCS Metasurface and Its Application on Patch Antenna
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 98, 77-87, 2020
Abstract
A new metasurface (MS) structure for wideband low radar cross section (RCS) and its performance as an antenna has been analyzed and proposed in this paper. The MS has been designed with two different AMC unit cells, and the novel AMCs scatter the incident waves diffusively. The parameters and dimensions of the AMCs are optimized to get the best performance of the antenna. Furthermore, the unit cell structure of metasurface is designed and positioned to improve the directivity of the antenna. The reflected electromagnetic waves scatter in a manner of 180⁰ out of phase with the incident waves, and the antenna's scattering and radiation performance has also been examined. Full-wave simulations and measurements confirm that the proposed antenna achieves 10 dB RCS reduction over a wide bandwidth of 3-12 GHz (61.2%). A monostatic peak RCS reduction of 45 dB is accomplished at 5 GHz, 7 GHz, and 11.5 GHz. Besides, the radiation characteristics of the antenna are appropriate in the boresight direction, and the antenna exhibits good performance in $E$-, $H$-planes and ensures adequate directivity.
