Descrizione Metamaterials are artificial materials composed of various inclusion types embedded in a host medium in specific arrangements. Unusual metamaterial electromagnetic behavior can be achieved with metamaterials, by leveraging both the properties of the elementary constituent materials and the inclusion spatial arrangement. A metasurface (MTS)  is a thin metamaterial layer (2D metamaterial). MTS can be designed to provide engineered boundary conditions for controlling the propagation of surface waves and radiation . Applications of MTS range from on board antennas for satellite communications (low profile, high performances antennas) to biomedical and nanoscale application.
This thesis aims at the automatic design of MTS antennas using in-house modelling and optimization codes, at the validation of the designed MTS antennas with commercial software, and at the improvement of the modelling and optimization codes to face new and challenging scenarios.
