A Switchable Magnetic Low-Index Metamaterial for Use in a Dynamically Reconfigurable Beam-Scanning Lens Antenna With a Single Feed by

Metamaterials and Transformation Optics (TO) have been used to design and implement many novel electromagnetic devices that can achieve effects not possible using conventional materials. Compact high-gain antennas are one of the more popular and successful emerging applications for the new TO and metamaterial design approaches. This dissertation details an… (More)
