abstract

  • This article presents the design, construction and measurement of different 3D-printed Sievenpiper metasurfaces. The structures were printed using a conductive filament combined with regular polylactic acid PLA. Measurement shows a good agreement on the electromagnetic behaviour of the stop-bands generated by the fully 3D-printed metasurface and the simulated ideal cases, but with higher transmission losses due to the characteristics of the conductive filament.
