Abstract

In order to reduce the size of regularly shaped microstrip antennas, compact variations are used. Ring shaped microstrip reflectarrays have been discussed previously. Four different configurations, namely 1 × 3, 3 × 1, plus-shaped and 3 × 3 were discussed. An optimum gain of 10. 8 dBi and a beamwidth of 22. 7? was obtained for the 3 × 3 configuration. Another variation of the compact microstrip reflectarray, the C-shaped reflectarray, has been presented in this paper. Similar to the ring-shaped microstrip reflectarray, the C-shaped reflectarray gives an optimum gain of 7. 93 dBi and a beamwidth of 18. 5? for the 3 × 3 configuration.
