报告题目：Advanced Multifunctional Reconfigurable Antennas: 360-degree
Polarization Scanning/Beam Switching Techniques, and Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)
Inspired Flexible Antennas
reconfigurable antennas are capable of providing full flexibilities of
frequency, polarization and radiation patterns to satisfy the desired
specifications in modern intelligent systems for applications of 5G
communication, wearable systems, IoT and future sensing technologies.
Reconfigurable antennas designed with advanced scalability and new materials are
highly expected to cater these emerging applications. Recent progress from our
group has demonstrated the new directions of a possible mechanism for diverse
reconfigurable antenna designs. For proof of the concept, design examples with
the capabilities of 360-degree polarization scanning and 360-degree beam
steering are introduced taking advantage of the proposed approach of
individually control of shorting vias. The design example of a flexible material
integrated reconfigurable antenna is also demonstrated for future smart wearable
