Design of Ultra-wideband Low RCS Reflecting Screen Based on Phase Gradient Metasurface
In order to realize full phase coverage of 360° and abnormal reflection of incident wave, one kind of metasurface unit-cell with double diagonal opening cross petal and two types of one and two dimensional phase gradient metasurface with elements arranged on 6×6 array whose phase difference is 60°, were designed and constructed in this paper based on the abnormal reflection principle of phase gradient metasurface. By rotating the two phase gradient metasurfaces and arranging them in a spiral manner, three types of ultra-wideband low Radar Cross Section (RCS) reflecting screens with different unit configurations were devised. HFSS 14.0 was used for simulation experiment and the relative bandwidth of RCS reduction above 10 dB is respectively 34.5%、28.8% and 28.1%. Moreover, the peak value of RCS reduction can reach 44.9 dB. After testing the three reflecting screens in a microwave anechoic chamber, it was found that the measured results were basically in agreement with the simulation data, which verified the feasibility of the design. The design of reflecting screen proposed in this paper can provide a new method and approach for new ultra-wideband stealth technology.
