Design and Prototype of Transmissive Surfaces for Wireless Networks

This paper introduces an innovative transmissive reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) for wireless networks. By integrating PIN diodes into RIS elements for 1-bit phase tuning, scanning beams can be dynamically formed to enhance communication. A 16x16 element RIS prototype achieved over 20% bandwidth at 5.8 GHz with only 0.5 dB loss and 180 degree phase shift between states. Experiments showed 7 dB increased received power when overcoming obstacles, validating real-world potential to fill coverage gaps.
