Abstract

A new type of radome structure utilizing novel EM materials is proposed. Based on recently developed artificially structured metamaterials which exhibit novel effective medium properties, structures which perform electromagnetic gain/phase error correction are proposed to be incorporated into the radome structure to eliminate or reduce sources of abberations or other problems.
