Abstract

In this paper, the design of an electronically reconfigurable shaped-beam reflectarray is presented for the first time. The design technique is based on a flexible, efficient and effective synthesis algorithm, which evaluate the design parameters from the far-field power pattern specifications. The electronic control of the pattern has been realized by integrating varactor diodes within the array elements. The synthesis algorithm amounts to find their biasing voltages. The numerical analysis proves the effectiveness of the approach.
