Reflection phase properties of reflect array antenna design in the X-band frequency range has been addressed in this work. An analytical model for obtaining the required reflection phase from individual reflect array elements to form a planar wave in front of the periodic aperture has been presented. A unit cell patch element representing an infinite reflect array modeled based on FEM using the waveguide simulator demonstrated that there is no significant influence on the scattering parameters of reflect array resonant elements until the angle of incidence is increased up to 40 degrees. A Figure of Merit (FoM) has been defined for the comparison of the reflection phase curves of reflect arrays modeled with different dielectric substrates and the results are compared in terms of bandwidth performance and static linear phase range. Furthermore reflect array unit cell patch elements have been fabricated in X-band frequency range using different he practical validation of the waveguide scattering parameter measurements of unit cell reflect array elements. The measured results demonstrated an improvement in FoM and reflect array bandwidth performance with an increase in substrate thickness.
