Abstract

A design is presented for a beam-scanning Transformation Electromagnetics (TE) lens that allows an arbitrary number of beams at controlled magnitudes to be dynamically synthesized from a single omnidirectional source. A cylindrical slab of zero-index magnetic metamaterial controls the radiation pattern by altering the effective shape of the lens through switching regions of it off to emulate free-space conditions. This lens offers the potential for fast solid-state multi-beam control with application to advanced terrestrial communication systems or adaptive radars.
