The lowest impedance signal return path is in a plane directly under the signal trace. Slots in ground planes divert the ground current flow (see figure), thereby producing a high ground impedance (Inductance) and a ground plane voltage drop that is the cause of increased emissions from the cables connected to the board.

A novel structure using a variable microstrip ring with a slot ring on part of the ground plane is proposed as an auxiliary unit cell in a reflectarray. A progressive phase range larger than 682° has been achieved by changing the sizes of the microstrip rings and adding slot rings on part of the ground plane. A K-band reflectarray has been fabricated and shows very good performance.

A unit cell composed of a microstrip ring and a slot on the ground plane is presented. The phase response range of the unit cell at 18 GHz is over 440° with a smooth phase variation. A Ku band reflectarray is designed and measured at 18 GHz to verify its performance. The maximum gain and half-power beam width is 31.7 dB and 4.7°, respectively. Reflectarray Element Based on Aperture-Coupled Patches With ... Abstract: A phase-shifter element for printed reflectarrays with more than 4 cycles of phase delay is presented in this work. The proposed reflectarray element allows very linear phase curves and is based on the combination of two previously studied and demonstrated concepts: variable length slots on a ground plane and patches coupled through a slot to variable length lines.
