The dual-functional and/or multifunctional devices have huge fascinations and prospects to conveniently integrate complex systems with low costs. However, most of such devices are based on anisotropic media or anisotropic structures. Here, a new method is proposed to design planar dual-functional devices using an isotropic holographic metasurface, in which two different functions are written on the same holographic interference pattern with no mutual coupling. When the metasurface is excited by two orthogonally ported sources, the corresponding dual functions can be controlled by the object waves, which are not affected by each other due to suppression of mutual interference. The proposed metasurface is composed of subwavelength-scale isotropic metallic patches on a grounded dielectric. In this specific design, double-beam and double-polarization radiate devices are realized independently by the orthogonal excitations. Based on the theoretical analysis, scanning radiate beams that are only controlled by frequency with different performances under orthogonal polarizations are demonstrated. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time for actualizing dual-functional devices using isotropic textures. Full-wave simulations and experimental results in the microwave frequencies are presented to validate the proposed theory and confirm the corresponding physical phenomena.
