Abstract
A reconfigurable antenna (RA) capable of steering its beam into the hemisphere corresponding to ¿ ¿ {-40°,0°,40°}, Ø ¿ {0°,45°,90°,-45°}, and of changing 3-dB beamwidth, where ¿3dB ¿ (40°,100°), Ø ¿ {45°,90°,-45°} for broadside direction is presented. The RA operating in 5 GHz band consists of a driven patch antenna with a parasitic layer placed above it. The upper surface of the parasitic layer has two pixelated metallic strips, where each strip has four pixels. The pixels c...
