Wideband Metasurface Polarization Converter with Double-Square-Shaped Patch Elements
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 105, 47-58, 2020
Abstract
In this paper, a wideband metasurface reflector that converts polarization of plane wave to the cross polarization with a double-square-shaped unit cell is presented, and the principle of polarization conversion based on polarization synthesis is also presented. The proposed structure has a unit cell with the longest dimension of 0.37 wavelength, a width of 0.23 wavelength, and a thickness of about 0.09 wavelength. 95% or more of the incident wave power is converted to cross-polarization covering a fractional bandwidth of 32.4% at 8.5 GHz.
