Terahertz frequency coding metasurface

We propose a terahertz frequency coding metasurface based on T-shaped structure. It is composed of four kinds of coding metasurface cells with the same initial phase value and different phase sensitivity. Based on the pre-designed coding sequence, 1 bit, 2 bit periodic and non-periodic terahertz frequency coding metasurfaces are realized. By changing the working frequency, terahertz wave radiation energy can be effectively controlled without redesigning the coding metasurface cell. The theoretical calculation results are in good agreement with the simulation results. The designed terahertz frequency coding metasurface has a good dispersion effect on the main lobe energy of the reflected terahertz wave and effectively reduces the radar scattering cross section. Our device has great application value in the terahertz wave stealth.
