Dynamic Polarization Control of Integrated Radiators

S. M. Bowers, A. Safaripour, and A. Hajimiri

Dynamic polarization control (DPC) ensures polarization matching to the receiving antenna regardless of its polarization or orientation in space. A fully integrated 105.5 GHz 2×1 DPC multi-port driven radiator array with beam steering can radiate linear polarization across the the full polarization angle range of 0 to 180 degrees maintaining axial ratios above 10 dB, and can control the axial ratio from 2.4 dB to 13 dB in various directions of radiation and a maximum EIRP of 7.8 dBm.
