The aim of the project is to design and theoretically characterize reconfigurable metamaterial surfaces that can be used as ground planes for low-profile antennas, although other relevant applications are anticipated. Tunable elements are incorporated into the surface, such as varactor diodes or micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), to allow that the resonance frequency, as well as the effective response of the surface (i.e. the effective boundary
condition), can be tuned electronically.
