Abstract

The beam scanning properties of a 2-element patch array fed by a microstrip reed situated on a ferrite substrate are presented. Biasing the ferrite changes the phase length or the microstrip line, scanning the beam by up to 40 degrees. The resulting scan loss is similar to 2dB, mainly due to the ferrite becoming lossy as it approaches absorption resonance.
