A novel approach for the design of scanning antennas is proposed. It relies on the use of a reconfigurable metasurface (MTS) whose modulation can be adjusted so as to vary the pointing angle of the supported leaky wave. The building block of the MTS is an electrically very small bistable elementary cell, or “MTS bit”; proper combinations of a number of… CONTINUE READING
