Abstract:
A beam-scanning partially reflective surface (PRS) antenna is presented in this paper. By employing a reconfigurable feed network to a two-element phased array source, the PRS antenna can realize beam steering between -10° and 10° with respect to the broadside direction across an overlapped frequency range from 5.35 GHz to 5.76 GHz. Good agreement between the simulated and measured results is achieved, which validates its capability to be a good candidate for the modern communication systems.
