Broadband Asymmetric Propagation in Pillared Meta-Plates

Abstract : The asymmetric propagation of mechanical energy across interfaces is a challenging problem with a wide range of applications. In this work, we present a novel structure presenting the asymmetric propagation of elastic waves in thin plates in a broadband range. The structure consists of a combination of symmetrically and asymmetrically distributed pillars, so that the former decouple the different Lamb modes and the latter mix all of them. We show that a combination in tandem with these two structures can realize an efficient broadband asymmetric propagation at the subwavelength range and achieve a transmission difference larger than 200 dB between forward and backward directions. The proposed pillared meta-plate brings a new way for subwavelength and broadband wave manipulation in the fields of wave isolation, sensing and communication, among others.
