This letter presents a polarization reconfigurable MEMS-integrated coplanar patch antenna for mm-wave applications. The polarization of the field radiated by this reconfigurable antenna can be configured into right-handed circular polarization (RHCP), left-handed circular polarization (LHCP) or linear polarization (LP). This is accomplished by the activation/deactivation of RF-MEMS switches. The consistency of the simulated results was successfully checked with measurements.
