Abstract

The framework of coding metasurfaces provides a method to achieve RCS reduction via phase-based scattering using the concepts of interfering PEC and PMC scatterers. Typically, coding metasurface unit cells are designed and fabricated as planar structures, and, as a result, the achievable field of view is limited. However, by extending the unit cell design to three dimensions, which can be realized with the aid of additive manufacturing, it is possible to design coding metasurfaces for wide field of view (FOV) and broadband RCS reduction.
