Abstract

In this paper, a frequency selective surface (FSS) with tunable bandstop performance by integrating graphene is discussed. The graphene implanted in the circular FSS unit makes the transmission and reflection bands of the proposed FSS tunable owing to its alterable complex conductivity controlled by the chemical potential. The transmission zero of the proposed FSS performing as a reflection plane happens at the frequency from 1.65 THz to 2.19 THz when the chemical potentials of graphene change from 0 eV to 1 eV. Moreover, reconfigurable radiation pattern of a traditional dipole antenna is accomplished loaded with the proposed FSS by altering the complex conductivity of graphene. The dipole has a directional radiation pattern with enhanced directivity at 2.1 THz by adding the proposed FSS with μc = 0.8 eV. However, the omnidirectional radiation pattern is maintained by changing the value of chemical potential to 0 eV while the FSS is nearly transparent. Therefore, a radiation diversity property could be achieved by controlling the chemical potential of graphene loaded in FSS.
