Abstract

Millimeter-wave reconfigurable antennas are predicted as a future of next generation wireless networks with the availability of wide bandwidth. A coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed T-shaped frequency reconfigurable millimeter-wave antenna for 5G networks is presented. The resonant frequency is varied to obtain the 10dB return loss bandwidth in the frequency range of 23-29GHz by incorporating two variable resistors. The radiation pattern contributes two symmetrical radiation beams at approximately ±30o along the end fire direction. The 3dB beamwidth remains conserved over the entire range of operating bandwidth. The proposed antenna targets the applications of wireless systems operating in narrow passages, corridors, mine tunnels, and person-to-person body centric applications.
