Abstract

Reconfigurable reflectarray is an important topic in antenna research. Different kind of objectives can be identified for these systems, from beam scanning to adaptive beam shaping. In this paper 1-bit reflectarray has been optimized in order to obtain a flat beam. The reconfiguration capability of the array has been exploited in order to change properly the desired beam width. The optimization process has been done by means of a novel Evolutionary Optimization Algorithms, Social Network Optimization, suited for binary optimization problems.
