An efficient technique for calculating the scattering from curved metasurfaces using the extinction theorem in conjunction with the Floquet and Fourier series expansions is presented. Here, we treat the two-dimensional metasurfaces that have transversal polarizabilities with no variation along the y-axis. The boundary conditions at the metasurface are given by the generalized sheet transition conditions (GSTCs) whose susceptibilities are given in an arbitrary local coordinate system. First, we use the extinction theorem to provide integral equations of the scattering problem. The integral equations involve the Green’s functions, tangential electric and magnetic fields and their normal derivatives in regions above and below the metasurface. Then, we employ the Floquet theorem that gives us the analytical periodic Green’s functions of each region. Next, we employ the Fourier theorem to expand the tangential fields in terms of unknown Fourier coefficients. The GSTCs and the integral equations provide equations to be solved for the unknowns. The method can calculate scattering from both periodic and non-periodic metasurfaces. The technique is used to analyse different applied problems such as carpet cloaking, illusion, and radar echo width reduction. The method is fast and accurate and can efficiently treat metasurfaces with electrically large curved geometries with dimensions as large as 120 times the wavelength.
