The modern development of wireless power transfer (WPT) technologies brings various products that improve the lives of users. It has become an urgent demand to simultaneously charge multiple mobile devices operating under different WPT standards on a charging platform regardless of their position and orientation with respect to each other. Recent advances in metasurfaces make it possible to control the near electromagnetic fields with much more degrees of freedom in comparison to conventional resonators. Here, we develop a compact multi-mode metamaterial-inspired resonator formed as an array of sub-wavelength parallel strip conductors. This resonator aims to replace conventional flat coil resonators and offers multiple modes with different profiles of electromagnetic field distribution for various near-field WPT applications. The first three eigenmodes are numerically and experimentally studied, and their potential applications for design of multi-mode WPT systems capable of charging multiple receivers simultaneously are discussed.
