We report on a numerical study of a new bianisotropic parameter retrieval technique for both regular and complementary V-shape antenna metasurfaces. Each antenna element with a discrete phase shift is modeled by a homogenous bianisotropic film to represent the optical response. For the complementary design, the retrieval implies a complementary behavior of effective material properties and predicts the analogous functionalities. Further, FDFD solver is developed to integrate the bianisotropic descriptions of each antenna and describes a fully functional metasurface. The computational burden is significantly reduced, because effective material properties replace the detailed meshing of the antennas. Experimentally, large dimension arrays of nanoa-voids are fabricated using electron beam lithography. It is demonstrated that cross-polarized light is diffracted towards the same direction. Furthermore, the complementary design greatly increases the extinction ratio of functional fields to background fields.
