Abstract


We propose an original steerable antenna using tunable metamaterial. Our structure consists of a Vivaldi antenna coupled with an active metamaterial made of 5 independent and tunable lines. Thanks to these lines, the phase and therefore emission angle of the wave is controlled. A deflection up to ±28° has been achieved.
