Study on Gain Enhancement of the Antenna Using Planar Small Metasurface Lens

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 468)


This paper proposes the analysis of unit cell of different shapes which would be in future used to form a metasurface lens for enhancing the gain. In this paper, various shapes such as rectangular, hexagonal, etc. of the unit cell are designed to operate at about 5 GHz frequency and are analyzed and simulated using HFSS 16.0. The relative permittivity and the relative permeability is calculated and analyzed for the designed unit cell.
