Design of Polarization Reconfigurable Microstrip Antenna with Frequency Tuning

Abstract: This paper presents a polarization reconfigurable microstrip antenna with frequency tuning. Frequency reconfigurability is achieved by etching a rectangular ring slot in a corner truncated polarization reconfigurable antenna. Reconfigurability is achieved by electronic switching with the help of solid state device such as PIN diode. The proposed design is validated by simulation results. Return loss, axial ratio and gain characteristics of linear, right and left hand circular polarization states are presented at dual frequencies.

Index terms: frequency reconfigurable, microstrip antenna, PIN diodes, polarization reconfigurable, WLAN.
