Abstract  This paper presents a novel coupled receiver-transmitter metasurface (MS) which is used to realize a high-aperture-efficiency Fabry-Perot resonator antenna. The unit cell of the MS adopts a slot-coupling procedure to realize energy transmission from the receiver patch to the radiator patch. This approach makes it easier to independently control the transmission magnitude and phase. Based on this characteristic, the transmission coefficients of different unit cells on the MS can be optimized by a genetic algorithm. Then, nearly uniform electric amplitude and phase distribution across the aperture field of the antenna are achieved. Therefore, the gain and aperture efficiency of the antenna are improved. A prototype of the optimized antenna is fabricated and measured to validate the design. The measured gain of the fabricated antenna reaches 17.3 dBi with an aperture efficiency of 94.5%. A higher aperture efficiency is obtained with the proposed antenna which has a low profile and simple structure.
