In this paper, a synthesis and implementation method for generating Bessel beams based on time-reversal theory incorporating electromagnetic (EM) meta-lens is proposed. As is known, time-reversal EM waves has the unique characteristic of adaptive backtracking. Therefore, with this characteristic, the EM characteristics of the radiation aperture can be obtained and further utilized to generate Bessel waves with any departure angle. Based on this concept, two meta-lenses for generating Bessel beams tilted in different directions were designed. Both meta-lenses were designed at the center frequency of 15 GHz, and the simulation results were consistent with the target expectation. A representative meta-lens was fabricated and measured. The final size of the meta-lens was 350 mm × 350 mm, and a Bessel beam with a 30° emergence angle was generated by this structure. The experimental results were in good agreement with the simulation results and the theoretical derivation. This synthetic method of Bessel beam generation using the time-reversal operation may be of great use for the application of Bessel beams in microwave communications, and it can broaden the application scope of non-diffracting beams.

Abstract

In this paper, a synthesis and implementation method for generating Bessel beams based on time-reversal theory incorporating electromagnetic (EM) meta-lens is proposed. As is known, time-reversal EM waves has the unique characteristic of adaptive backtracking. Therefore, with this characteristic, the EM characteristics of the radiation aperture can be obtained and further utilized to generate Bessel waves with any departure angle. Based on this concept, two meta-lenses for generating Bessel beams tilted in different directions were designed. Both meta-lenses were designed at the center frequency of 15 GHz, and the simulation results were consistent with the target expectation. A representative meta-lens was fabricated and measured. The final size of the meta-lens was 350 mm × 350 mm, and a Bessel beam with a 30° emergence angle was generated by this structure. The experimental results were in good agreement with the simulation results and the theoretical derivation. This synthetic method of Bessel beam generation using the time-reversal operation may be of great use for the application of Bessel beams in microwave communications, and it can broaden the application scope of non-diffracting beams.
