Abstract: This paper proposes a reconfigurable polarization converter based on a p-i-n diode controlled active metasurface (AMS). The AMS consists of a thin dielectric substrate and is tuned by two identical layers of elliptic split rings loaded with p-i-n diodes. The p-i-n diodes are positioned between the split gaps and biased through the interconnected elliptic split rings without extra bias network. The active design achieves conversion from linear to circular polarization when the p-i-n diodes are OFF, whereas no conversion takes place when the diodes are ON. A prototype of the proposed design is fabricated, and the operational characteristics are measured. Both the simulated and the experimental results verify the viability of the design. Subsequently, the converter is applied to a linearly polarized horn antenna as a superstrate, making the polarization of the antenna reconfigurable.
