PROJECT TITLE :
A Frequency- and Polarization-Reconfigurable Stub-Loaded Microstrip Patch Antenna
A stub-loaded microstrip patch antenna with reconfigurability in each frequency and polarization is presented. Using twelve varactors with two independent voltages, reconfigurability is achieved in a fractional bandwidth of around forty% while allowing selection between circular polarization (CP) with both rotating senses and linear polarization (LP). The design is optimized based on an analytical model, that significantly quickens the method while yielding reasonably correct predictions. For illustration of the concept, an antenna is meant, optimized, and manufactured for reconfigurable operation in the two.four–three.six GHz frequency vary. A smart agreement between simulations and measurements is obtained that validates the proposed methodology. A full reconfigurability is demonstrated in the operation band with the ability to both tune the antenna to a given frequency and select a polarization state among left-hand or right-hand CP or varied states of LP.
