Beam steering in photonic crystals is significant in manipulating light beams. In this paper, we design self-collimation, beam splitting, and negative refraction effects in photonic crystals based on metallic pairs immersed in dielectric background. By using a single array of metallic pairs, a broadband and wide-angle self-collimation effect is achieved. Meanwhile, due to the extreme anisotropy, a beam splitting effect is achieved by utilizing the kissing of equi-frequency contours. We then restructure the unit cell with glide symmetry to achieve negative refraction effect in a wide frequency range and realize the effect of flat lens. To illustrate this phenomenon, a flat lens based on the restructured unit cell is designed and numerically demonstrated.
