Abstract

The use of inhomogeneous metamaterial lenses is proposed to enable suitable radiation properties for arbitrary-shape antenna arrays. Towards this end, the Quasi-Conformal Transformation Optics (QCTO) methodology is generalized to allow an arbitrary physical arrangement coated with a suitable lens to exhibit the same radiating features of an arbitrary reference virtual array in free space. A representative numerical example, concerned with a two-dimensional layout, is presented to assess the effectiveness of the proposed method as well as the enhanced features of the resulting metamaterial-coated arrays with respect to standard conformal arrangements.
