Abstract

A tunable metasurface unit cell that is based on counter-rotating end-loaded dipole (ELD) elements is proposed for high-power reflector antennas. The metasurface is tuned by mechanically rotating the ELD elements and thus avoids the power handling limitations of tunable capacitors such as varactors. Simulations of the full reflector antenna show that the reflection phase can be controlled across the metasurface by properly rotating the ELDs.
