Özet

A dual-polarized frequency-tunable composite left-handed slab (CLS) is proposed. The CLS consists of periodic split-ring resonators (SRRs) along with thin wires. Two orthogonal SRR/wire arrays are utilized for dual-polarization purposes. Polarization-selectivity and frequency-tuning are achieved by means of on/off switches placed between the rings of the SRR. By opening all of the switches for one array and closing them for the other, the left-handed behavior can be switched on and off, respectively. Frequency-tuning performance is then achieved by turning on/off the switches in the former array. Transmission characteristics of the composite structure are predicted using a fast periodic array simulator based on the hybrid finite element-boundary integral (FE-BI) method in conjunction with the fast spectral domain algorithm (FSDA). Numerical results demonstrate dual-polarization and frequency-tuning performance of the proposed switching configuration.
