This paper demonstrates the use of materials with variable conductivity in antenna design. These materials vary their conductivity in response to an electrical stimulus. Making part of an antenna from a variable conductive material provides some control over the resonant behavior of the antenna. This capability is useful for dynamically changing the operating frequency of the antenna or turning elements on and off for an adaptive array.
