A Figure-of-Merit for Pattern Reconfigurable Antennas

Abstract

The performance of pattern reconfigurable antennas is evaluated with the purpose of deriving a figure-of-merit for pattern reconfigurability. A general formulation is provided for the average gain achieved by a reconfigurable antenna (RA) in the presence of an incoming plane wave with statistically distributed direction-of-arrival and polarization. It has… (More)
