We propose to realize wideband deflected reflection in microwave regime through multiple resonances. A wideband deflected reflection of a phase gradient metasurface is designed using a double-head arrow structure, which has demonstrated an ultra-wideband cross-polarized reflection caused by multiple electric and magnetic resonances. The wideband effect benefits from the wideband cross-polarized reflection and flexible phase modulation of the double-head arrow structure. Simulated and experimental results agree well with theoretical predictions. Furthermore, relative bandwidths of deflected reflection reach to 71 % for both x- and y-polarized waves under normal incidence. Our method of expansion bandwidth may pave the way in many practical applications, such as RCS reduction, stealth surfaces.
