Conclusion and Outlook

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Voltage tunable metamaterials for microwave frequencies have been investigated, designed, and manufactured within this work. The concept of metamaterials, where the electromagnetic response of sub-wavelength unit cells, which are arranged in periodic lattices, is described by effective material parameters, has been applied to design different planar and three-dimensional unit cell configurations considering their realizability and technological constraints. Based on the presented approaches, metamaterials with independently voltage tunable electric and magnetic properties can be designed.
