Pattern Reconfigurable Cubic Antenna


A new single-feed reconfigurable antenna for pattern diversity is presented in this paper. The proposed structure is based on a metallic cubic cavity which radiates through rectangular slots. The pattern reconfiguration is achieved with PIN diode switches by short-circuiting slots in their center. The designed antenna can switch between three different radiation patterns which radiate in a 4π steradian range and can receive any incident field polarizations. A prototype of the antenna, including PIN diodes and operating in the 5 GHz band, has been built to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept. Measurements have been conducted and three-dimensional radiation patterns are provided. Diversity performances are evaluated by calculating the envelope correlation coefficient.
