Corner Reflectarray for Indoor Wireless Applications

Name of the conference: IET APC2019

Date of publication: 11-12 November 2019

Abstract: Two reflectarray surfaces (RAS) placed on opposing walls in a corner demonstrate steering of wireless signals at 90o, suitable for propagation around a corner in a corridor. A prototype using square patch RASs was evaluated achieving comparable performance to an inclined metal reflector at 5.5 GHz. The RASs were constructed using a foam spacer with the arrays printed onto a thin polyester film leading to a low cost solution. This also provided sufficient bandwidth to meet the requirement of the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band (12%)
