DRA Reflectarray Unit Elements with Thin Under-Loading Parallel Slots

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 48, 103-110, 2014
Abstract
This paper presents three dielectric resonator (DR) unit elements loaded with one, two, and three narrow slots underneath for designing reflectarrays. The slots are aligned in parallel, and the lengths are varied to function as phase shifter for changing reflection phase. It is found that the dominant TE mode of the square DR element can be easily excited by placing multiple parallel slots beneath a DR element. Study shows that the number and width of the slots can be used as additional design parameters for tuning the reflection loss and phase range of the reflectarray. Rectangular waveguide method has been deployed, showing reasonable agreement between simulation and measurement. It is found that a reasonable reflection phase range of 313° with slow slope is obtainable when the DRA is loaded with two slots beneath, which can be used for designing a small-size reflectarray. The reflection characteristics of the unit elements are studied, along with a complete parametric analysis.
