Design of Novel Reconfigurable Frequency Selective Surfaces with Two Control Techniques
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 35, 135-145, 2013
Abstract
Novel reconfigurable frequency selective surfaces (RFSS) are designed using a finite-difference time-domain with periodic boundary condition (FDTD/PBC) algorithm. The FSS are reconfigured using two techniques: the first technique providing a wide frequency tuning range is based on using diodes to change the current distribution over the FSS surface, and the second technique exhibiting a finer frequency tuning resolution is based on changing the grid orientation of the FSS mechanically. Simulation results are provided to validate the concept of RFSS. The results show that these designs provide a wide dynamic range of reconfigurability and a large degree of freedom in controlling the FSS frequency response.
