From frequency selective surfaces (FSS) to electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) ground planes, from impedance boundaries to Huygens metasurfaces, novel electromagnetic surfaces have been emerging in both microwaves and optics. Many intriguing phenomena occur on these surfaces, and novel devices and applications have been proposed accordingly, which have created an exciting paradigm in electromagnetics, so called “surface electromagnetics”. This seminar will review the development of electromagnetic surfaces, as well as the state-of-the art concepts and designs. Detailed presentations will be provided on their unique electromagnetic features. Furthermore, a wealth ofpractical examples will be presented to illustrate promising applications of the surface electromagnetics in microwaves and optics.
