Abstract
The performance of pattern reconfigurable antennas is evaluated with the purpose of deriving a figure-of-merit for pattern reconfigurability. A general formulation is provided for the average gain achieved by a reconfigurable antenna (RA) in the presence of an incoming plane wave with statistically distributed direction-of-arrival and polarization. It has been observed that for usual scenarios, the polarization dependence can be isolated and the RA performance is directly related to the maximum ...
