The motivation behind the group’s research is to fabricate the physical structures for implementing a new type of frontier in wireless sensing and communication. While several aspects of the design are subjected to intense study, the focus of this project will be to implement a universal biasing system where the integrity of the signal is not compromised by the power being supplied to the unit. This will create a compact and easily replicable system where such a design can be applied to several types of different reflectarrays and the compatibility will not be limited by build specifications.
