To demonstrate the basic principle, let’s consider a TM wave obliquely incident from free space to a uniaxial medium, as shown in Fig. 3. The permittivity and permeability of the uniaxial medium are defined in tensor forms as below:     a 0 0 c 0 0 ¯ = µ0  0 d 0  . 17) 2 2 + k1y = ω2 ε0 µ0 . 18) E 2 = − xˆ ωεa ωεb 2 2 k2y k2x + = ω2 ε0 µ0 . bd ad Here, and τ are reflection and transmission coefficients. Applying the boundary conditions on the interface, we obtain: 1+ = τ k2x k1x τ (1 − ) = ωε0 ωεb k1y = k2y .

The reason is that the patch size is much smaller than the wavelength at the frequency of interest. Thus, the difference in the wavenumbers between the x direction and the diagonal direction is too small to be observed. 4 Plane wave scattering analysis Periodic structures also find many applications in the design of various scatterers and antenna arrays. For example, frequency selective surfaces (FSS) consisting of periodic dipoles or slots are used as radomes for large antenna systems [32]. Planar reflectarray antennas, which are built from hundreds or thousands of antenna elements arranged in a periodic lattice, are installed in spacecraft for Earth remote sensing and deep space exploration programs [33].

For a thin grounded dielectric slab, only TM0 mode exists within the interested frequency region (0–10 GHz), and the eigen-frequency at a given propagation constant (wavenumber) is slightly lower than the light line. Similar observation is found for the periodic patch loaded structure at the lower frequency region. When the frequency increases, a noticeable deviation is observed between the dispersion curves of the periodic structure and the dispersion curve of the grounded slab. 4 Plane wave scattering analysis 37 10 8 Freq.
