Passive 2-d Retro Directive Array Antenna with Adjustable Reflection Angle
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 107, 103-110, 2022
Abstract
In this paper, a planar passive array antenna is proposed with capability of reradiating the incoming incident wave to predetermined θ and φ reflection angles (2-D). This purpose is achieved by differentiating array elements' phases with the help of inter-connecting transmission lines. Incident and reradiated signal paths are isolated through two orthogonal polarizations used in the array structure. The idea is realized with a 2×2, microstrip, dual linearly polarized antenna arrays in 2 GHz operating frequency on the Ro5880 substrate with 1.2 mm height. Nonlinear nature of the theory behind this idea leads to some limitations in choosing the angles of incident and reflected signals which is thoroughly investigated.
