Abstract: Reflectarray antenna has emerged as a new generation of high-gain antennas. Recently, the reflectarray research has been expanded from microwave to THz and optical frequencies. In this presentation, several design methodologies on THz reflectarray antennas are reviewed, such as planar patch reflectarrays, 3D structure reflectarrays, and reconfigurable reflectarrays. Some practical applications of reflectarrays have also been discussed. It is expected that this overview will stimulate creative THz reflectarray research in the community.
