Surface electromagnetic modes, occasionally formed by natural-existing 2D boundary conditions, can be enhanced and controlled transforming contact surfaces into artificially manipulated metasurfaces: propagation and radiation patterns can be properly shaped according to the desired specifications. Focusing the attention on microstrip technology, deep investigations based on dispersion engineering show how controlling surface waves lead to exotic applications, spanning from tunable planar propagation (creation of pass/stop bands) to conformal radiation control for cloaking purpose.
