Experimental demonstration of nonlinear waveform-dependent metasurface absorber with pulsed signals


The absorbing performance of a nonlinear waveform-dependent metasurface with pulsed signals is demonstrated. The metasurface is a periodic structure containing diodes, capacitors and resistors. These enable us to first rectify a high-power incoming signal to a static field, then store the energy during the illumination and dissipate it before the next pulse comes in. The incident pulses contain a finite width of spectrum of around 4.2 GHz. By using the nonlinear metasurface, absorption that depends on both the power and the duty cycle of the incoming signals is measured. These measurements demonstrate the first waveform-dependent absorbing metasurface. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2013.
