In this paper we describe a method for optimizing frequency reconfigurable pixel antennas. The method utilizes a multi-objective function that is efficiently computed by using only one full electromagnetic simulation in the entire genetic algorithm optimization process. Minimization of the number of switches in the design is also attempted. The method is demonstrated using an antenna structure consisting of a rectangular grid of pixels adjacent to a ground plane and using RF MEMS switches for… CONTINUE READING
