Abstract-Fast design of broadband terahertz diffusion metasurfaces
Jie Zhao, Qiang Cheng, Tian Qi Wang, Wei Yuan, and Tie Jun Cui
A method for fast design of broadband terahertz diffusion metasurface is presented. The proposed metasurface is composed by three kinds of simply patterned elements with different resonant properties. To obtain the best broadband performance with the lowest backward reflections, a genetic algorithm is developed to manipulate the resonances for the fast determination of element geometries. An inverse discrete Fourier transform method is used to predict the scattering pattern of the metasurface with high accuracy and low time consumption, significantly enhancing the efficiency of the array-pattern design. The proposed fast design flow will benefit a broad range of terahertz applications, such as biological detection and imaging.
