Microfluidic focal plane arrays (MFPAs) have been recently introduced to implement compact high-gain beam-scanning antennas without resorting to active RF devices. This beam-scanning technique relies on a patch antenna element that can be microfluidically repositioned at the focal plane of a microwave lens. The feed network is strategically designed to be passive and accommodate the position variation in the antenna element. This paper, for the first time, considers the design details and… CONTINUE READING
