A directional antenna with a variable beam direction

Research output: Patent

Abstract

Described herein is a source for a directional antenna. Also described are a directional antenna and a method of designing an antenna. In one aspect, the present disclosure provides a source with spatially substantially uniform phase. The source includes an emitter or receiver and a delay compensator being positioned in a near-field region of the emitter or receiver. In a second aspect, the present disclosure provides a directional antenna including a source and a pair of directional metasurfaces, both directional metasurfaces being positioned in a near-field region of the source.
