2-Bit Reconfigurable Unit-Cell and Electronically Steerable Transmitarray at Ka-Band

Abstract : This paper presents the design, optimization, fabrication, and characterization of an electronically steerable transmitarray with 2 bits of phase quantization per unit cell. The proposed transmitarray operates in linear polarization at Ka-band and is composed of 14W14 reconfigurable unit-cells. Four p-i-n diodes are integrated on each unit-cell to control the radiated field phase distribution across the transmitarray aperture. The prototype demonstrates experimentally pencil beam scanning over a 120W120-degree window, a maximum gain at broadside of 19.8 dBi, and a 3-dB fractional bandwidth of 16.2%.
