Recently, new artificial material has been proposed to control an electromagnetic wave-metasurface, a two-dimensional metamaterial. Compared with a three-dimensional bulky metamaterial, this artificial plane material with sub-wavelength thickness greatly reduces fabrication time and mitigates fabrication complexity. Additionally, traditional metamaterials usually control the wavefront of an electromagnetic wave by accumulating the phase through propagating at a distance far larger than the wavelength. However, a metasurface can efficiently manipulate the wavefront of an incident electromagnetic wave through just the subwavelength propagation distance. Therefore, this can largely alleviate the propagation loss. Given the fact that a metasurface has high manipulation efficiency for an electromagnetic wave in the near filed regime, our group investigated experimental work on the analogy of gravity using a metasurface.
