Glide symmetries: a new degree of freedom for the design of periodic structures

November 7, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Glide symmetries were employed for electromagnetic purposes during the 60s and 70s. Those works were focused on one-dimensional structures with potential application in low-dispersive leaky wave antennas. However, the development of planar/printed technologies in the 80s and 90s associated to their low-cost for low-frequency applications, the studies of glide symmetries stopped. In the beginning of the 21st century, with arrival of metamaterials, there was a significant development of the understanding of periodic structures, and new methods of analysis were introduced. This theoretical development, together with the interest of industry in mm-waves, particularly for communications systems such as 5G/6G, created an opportunity to explore the possibilities of glide symmetries, especially in two-dimensional configurations. Glide-symmetric structures has recently attracted the attention of researchers due to their attractive properties for practical applications. Among their interesting properties are low-dispersive responses in fully metallic structures such as parallel plate or co-planar waveguides (CPW), bandgaps associated to the symmetries and large electromagnetic bandgaps (EBGs). In this talk, Dr. Quevedo-Teruel will describe the most significant works in glide symmetries, including their application for the design of gap-waveguide technology and planar lens antennas with steerable angles of radiation.
