Abstract

This paper introduces a novel reconfigurable antenna with switched beams by using integrated phase-change material (PCM). Two PCM GeTe-based parasitic patches considered as switchable elements between amorphous and crystalline states are applied to operate with a driven patch radiator. The proposed antenna achieves three switched beams at 0°, 20° and 60° with respect to the broadside direction with realized gains of 7 dBi at 30 GHz. Obtained result shows that the proposed technique is effective to control the tilted beam angle of the antenna by the amorphous-to-crystalline activation of the GeTe patch which can be realized by an optical source, making the antenna simple and compact without extra bias circuit. Hence, the antenna is suitable for millimeter-wave applications.
