This paper presents preliminary measurement results of a reflection phase shifter realized in a hybrid MEMS and Liquid Crystal technology. The MEMS switch part of the phase shifter is undesirably affected by Liquid Crystal, leading to a higher actuation voltage and the absence of a sudden switching operation. Nevertheless, measurements of the LC filled MEMS switch could achieve the desired 180° phase shift.

Abstract

This paper presents preliminary measurement results of a reflection phase shifter realized in a hybrid MEMS and Liquid Crystal technology. The MEMS switch part of the phase shifter is undesirably affected by Liquid Crystal, leading to a higher actuation voltage and the absence of a sudden switching operation. Nevertheless, measurements of the LC filled MEMS switch could achieve the desired 180° phase shift.
