Near-field measurement of a planar meta-surface illuminated by dipole antennas
In this paper, the uniform illumination of a meta-surface that is fed by a single dipole antenna or an array is experimentally investigated by means of near-field measurements. The results of the scanned field, when the dipoles are radiating in free space and when the meta-surface is placed atop them are presented. By means of this measurement, the coupling reduction between dipoles of an array due to the presence of the meta-surface is observed. ©2008 IEEE.
