Abstract

This paper focuses on the application of a tunable square microstrip unit cell to the design of a wideband reconfigurable reflectarray antenna. The design utilizes the concept of varactor-loaded stubs to provide a wide tuning range with sufficient phase range. A parametric study on the unit cell is performed, including the effect of incidence angle of the incoming wave. On that basis, the parametrically optimized unit cell is predicted to achieve a tunable phase range of more than 300° over a 20% frequency tuning band.
