Abstract

A plano–concave lens with source-tailored geometric profile and transformational gradient index is proposed for broadband illumination. Such a design, capable of focusing and collimating the electromagnetic fields, fulfils the functionality of a converging lens and can also achieve a steerable beam and multiple beams efficiently. Nonresonant synthesis with a perforated dielectric plate and dielectric rod arrays is demonstrated for the lensing realization, promising a wide operating frequency band in the practical implementation.
