Abstract

Characteristic mode analysis of metal only unit cells of periodic structures is performed using Method of Moments based formulation. Ewald’s transformation is incorporated for a fast and cost efficient solution and the advantages over spatial Green’s function are discussed. The influence of the unit cell size on the characteristic modes is demonstrated. Various metal-only reflectarray elements are compared and their radiation characteristics are interpreted using the theory of characteristic modes. It is shown that characteristic modes of the unit cell can help us to understand the radiation and scattering behavior of the unit cell and this physical insight can be used in periodic array unit cell design.
