Advances on High-Performance Curved Reflectarrays for Telecommunication Applications
The latest advances on the use of curved reflectarrays for telecommunication applications is presented in this paper. For contoured beam applications, the curvature of the reflectarray surface can be used to enhance the bandwidth significantly, yielding reflectarray designs that can surpass the performance of a traditional shaped reflector. For multiple spot beam applications, the curved reflectarray can be used to reduce the number of main apertures from four to two, while maintaining single-feed-per-beam operation.
