© 2019 European Association on Antennas and Propagation. A reconfigurable partially reflective surface (PRS) antenna with improved beam steering capability is proposed in this paper. Compared with our previous paper, the beam-steering angle can be enhanced from ±5° to ±17° with less active elements and a much smaller gain variation. It is realized by employing a compact reconfigurable metasurface as the PRS structure, which is located atop a probe-fed square patch antenna. A prototype antenna operating at 5.5 GHz is fabricated and measured. Good agreement between the simulated and measured results for the input reflection coefficients and radiation patterns is achieved, which validates the feasibility of the design principle.
