Surface Electromagnetics: Physics Exploration and Engineering Applications


Abstract: From frequency selective surfaces to Huygens metasurfaces, novel electromagnetic surfaces have been emerging in both scientific exploration and engineering applications. Many intriguing phenomena occur on these surfaces, and novel devices and applications have been proposed accordingly, which have created an exciting paradigm in electromagnetics, the so-called “Surface Electromagnetics (SEM)”. This presentation will review the development of various electromagnetic surfaces, as well as state-of-the-art concepts and designs. The fundamentals of SEM will be summarized and the frontier topics will be prospected, including their promising applications in microwaves, THz, and optic regimes.
