The design of reflectarrays is a complex and time-consuming process that very often relies on a trial-and-error approach. In this article, a simplified analysis based on a commercial simulator is proposed. This method, valid for both passive and active antennas, uses a simulator to characterize the single radiating cell and evaluates the contribution of the(More)
A reconfigurable aperture-coupled reflectarray element is proposed for the realization of beam steering antennas, suitable for radar applications. Each reflectarray element is coupled to a microstrip line, which is loaded by a single varactor diode acting as a phase shifter element, thus providing a continuously variable reflection phase. A reduced size(More)
