Abstract:
A 1.5 ?0-thick planoconcave zoned lens based on the fishnet metamaterial is demonstrated experimentally at millimeter wavelengths. The zoning technique applied allows a volume reduction of 60% compared to a full fishnet metamaterial lens without any deterioration in performance. The structure is designed to exhibit an effective refractive index n=-0.25 at f=56.7 GHz ( ?0=5.29 mm) with a focal length FL=47.62mm=9 ?0. The experimental enhancement achieved is 11.1 dB, which is in good agreement with simulation and also with previous full fishnet metamaterial lenses and opens the door for integrated solutions.
