A wide bandwidth element of solar reflect array antenna with scanning ability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A simple solar cell integrated with a triangular loop shape element of reflects array antenna is presented in this paper. The triangular loop shape element is varied in size to get the required phase range and bandwidth. A wide bandwidth range over 15% has been achieved. Furthermore, a 3 × 3 element reflect array is then formed with 20° scattering angle. A prototype of the solar reflects array cell was fabricated and measured. The measured results show good agreement with simulation. The element is designed to be operated at Ku-band frequency and formed a solar reflect array antenna used for terrestrial applications.
