Abstract

This paper describes the design and realization of a modulated metasurface (MTS) antenna at 300 GHz. To overcome the hurdles associated with the use of dielectric substrates in the sub-millimeter wave range, we propose an MTS structure which consists of an array of metalized cylinders placed on a ground plane. The metal cylinders are arranged in a square lattice with sub-wavelength unit cell size. This MTS topology has been successfully used to design a spiral MTS antenna. The resulting structure has been micromachined out of a silicon wafer by means of deep reactive ion etching (DRIE). The performance of the antenna has been verified by full-wave simulations, and measurements will be available at the time of the conference.
