Electronically steerable passive array radiator (ESPAR) antennas constitute a promising research field and are expected to play important role in future wireless communications. In this paper, a new approach in ESPAR antenna design for base station applications is proposed. A corner-plate reflector is combined with active and passive (reactively loaded) elements in order to implement a corner-reflector ESPAR (CR-ESPAR) configuration. It is shown that when combined with corner reflectors in… CONTINUE READING
