Abstract

This thesis work builds upon the theoretical studies and full-wave analysis of radio frequency micro- and nano-electromechanical systems (RF M/NEMS) integrated multi-functional reconfigurable antennas(MRAs). This is a part of the overall M/NEMS research efforts performed in the RF NEMS Laboratory at USU, which includes design, microfabrication, test, and characterization of M/NEMS integrated congitive wireless communication systems (fig. A.1).

The thesis work focuses on two MRAs. 1) A triple bands patch antenna which can operate at 800, 2400, and 4900 MHz in response to public safety wireless communication systems. 2) A multi-frequency multi-polarization MRA for wireless personal area networking application (WPAN) operating at 57-64 GHz frequency range
