Abstract

We present a new class of low loss dynamically reconfigurable metasurfaces and their applications in the design of a beam steered high gain antenna at millimeter-wave (mm-wave)frequencies. A new tuning technology is applied to multilayer metasurfaces and the advantages of the proposed technology in terms of low loss, high switching speed and overall antenna performance is demonstrated. The proposed technology is scalable to higher mm-wave and THz frequencies using innovative micromachining processes.
