Abstract: In this paper, a new high-gain transmitter antenna based on multilayer metasurfaces (MMS) is proposed. The MMS consists of multilayer metal patches and rings array. By analyzing the MMS unit, we can get preferable unit transmission factors and phase-shift ranging of 310º, which can compose four kinds of transmitter antennas that respectively realize the main beam regulation of antennas in the scanning angles of 0º, 30º, 45º, 60º with high gains. The -3 dB gain bandwidth of transmission wave reaches 12%. The simulation and the measured results of the proposed transmitter antenna show that the wide-angle control of the scanning angles of the antenna and the azimuth direction control can be realized effectively.
