A metasurfing concept is demonstrated and applied in the design of Luneburg lens antennas. Using an array of size-varying circular patches on a dielectric substrate inside a parallel-plate waveguide (PPW) structure variable surface impedance is obtained, which realizes an equivalent refraction index as that of a Luneburg lens. The obtained lens has good bandwidth characteristics and significant fabrication advantages with respect to conventional dielectric lenses. Based on this PPW lens, an H-plane antenna has been designed and simulated.
