Efficient Analysis of Metasurfaces in Terms of Spectral-Domain GSTC Integral Equations

By Nima Chamanara, Karim Achouri and Christophe Caloz


We present a spectral-domain (SD) technique for the efficient analysis of metasurfaces. The metasurface is modeled by generalized sheet transition conditions (GSTCs) as a zero-thickness sheet creating a discontinuity in the electromagnetic field. The SD expression of these GSTCs for a specified incident field leads to a system of four surface integral equations for the reflected and transmitted fields, which are solved using the method of moments in the spectral domain. Compared to the finite-difference and finite-element techniques that require meshing the entire computational domain, the proposed technique reduces the problem to the surface of the metasurface, hence eliminating one dimension and providing substantial benefits in terms of memory and speed. A monochromatic generalized-refractive metasurface and a polychromatic focusing metasurface are presented as illustrative examples
