Abstract

Conformal load-bearing smart skins (CLSS) provide the unique ability to integrate complex electrical systems into aerospace composite materials. This paper provides a preliminary investigation into the patterning of Artificial Impedance Surfaces (AIS) on these materials as they are well suited to develop conformal meta-surfaces (MTS). In particular, a composite veil material has been patterned using laser ablation and has been transferred directly onto a resin pre-impregnated (pre-preg) structural glass material. The new patterning technique was found suitable for the creation of fine geometric features with a resolution of approximately mathbf{100} mumathbf{m}. The material has been characterized by a reflected magnitude and phase measurement.
