A novel miniaturized and reconfigurable coplanar waveguide (CPW) square-ring slot antenna is presented in this paper. The miniaturization is achieved via a hybrid approach including ferroelectric varactor loadings, high dielectric constant materials, and tuning stub for impedance matching. For the first time, nine shunt ferroelectric (FE) BST (Ba(1-x)SrxTiO3) thin film varactors are integrated with the CPW antenna structure achieving both antenna miniaturization and reconfiguration at the same time. The size of the miniaturized antenna is reduced to 0.067λ0 0.067λ0 without ground, and 0.1λ0 0.1λ0 with ground. The resonant frequency of the miniaturized antenna can be reconfigured from 5.3 GHz to 5.8 GHz by applying a DC voltage. Measured E-plane and H-plane co-polarized patterns are presented.
