Time-frame of the project: 8.4.2010 – 7.4.2013

This project concerns the the mm-wave reconfigurable antenna based on S-PIN diodes suitable for using in mm-wave communication systems. The antenna was designed, fabricated, and subjected to the measurements in both steady and transient states. Moreover, the antenna was incorporated into a wireless system to determine its suitability for operating in such a system as a time-modulated linear array. By means of appropriate switching of the antenna, multiple radio frequency (RF) chains were simulated in a receiver having only one RF chain. This allowed applying a combining technique for improving the system performance in a presence of a strong interfering signal.
