This design is proposed as a component in low-cost beam scanning phased array antennas. The phase shifter structure consists of coupled microstrip line periodically loaded with eight Ba xSr 1-xTiO 3 (BST) varactors and two planar Marchand baluns. The planar Marchand baluns work as the transformers of odd mode excitation and a transmission stop circuit for even mode excitation as well as the impedance matching networks. A differential phase shift of 45 was obtained with a low dc bias of 20 V at frequency of 9 GHz, which corresponds to a figure of merit of ∼23/dB. These results represent significant progress toward compact size, low loss, and ferroelectric thin film-based phase shifters at room temperature. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.||Source Title:||Journal of Applied Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/96122||ISSN:||00218979||DOI:||10.1063/1.3686615|
