Abstract

The concept of generating two spaced beams in dual-CP by variable rotation technique (VRT) is validated for first time by manufacturing and measuring. A reflectarray demonstrator has been designed, manufactured and tested to deviate ±10° the beam of a dual-CP multi-flared horn at 19.7 GHz. The proposed reflectarray cell for VRT is made of a conductive cross printed on a grounded dielectric. The experimental results show two adjacent beams in dual-CP maintain the correct directions in the prescribed frequency band (19.2-20.2 GHz). The results are satisfactory and validate the concept for generating two spaced beams in orthogonal CP by VRT with a single feeds.
