In this article we outline a beamforming architecture
based on the programmable metasurfaces with memory
for applications in future device-to-device wireless communications.
Programmable metasurfaces have emerged as versatile
photonic tools for controlling wave fronts and performing nearly instantaneous
operations on the angular spectrum of propagating
electromagnetic waves. The ultimate goal of our research is to
implement parts of the signal processing associated with the
formation and tracking of the communication beams within such
smart, programmable metasurface layers. Here, we discuss the
ongoing work towards this goal and present related mathematical
models and realization strategies.
