Abstract

A water-based dynamically tunable microwave metasurface is developed and experimentally investigated. A simple approach to tune the metasurface properties by changing the shape of water-based unit cells by gravitation force is proposed. The transmission spectra of the metasurface for linear and circular polarizations of the incident wave are numerically simulated and experimentally measured under the metasurface rotation around a horizontal axis. The measured changes of the transmission coefficient magnitude up to 8 dB at 1.25 GHz are reported while rotating the metasurface by the 90 degrees angle. The proposed approach can be used to design cheap metasurfaces for electromagnetic wave control in the microwave frequency range.
