Abstract

An optically reconfigurable metasurface is proposed for use as an antenna radiator at 28 GHz. The metasurface is transmittive and is fed through a horn antenna connected to a multi-core-fibre link, significantly reducing the losses compared to a mm-wave feed. In the proposed system, radiated beams will be photonically controlled using a spatial light modulator, thus not requiring the use of optical fibers. For optical reconfigurability the switching component will be based on silicon instead of photodiodes and varactors, eliminating the need for an active biasing network.
