Abstract

An accordion origami structure is presented, which can be expanded and collapsed. Based on this structure, one origami antenna is designed with operating frequency that can be changed based on its height. A prototype antenna model is manufactured to validate the simulation model. The return loss, far-field radiation pattern and peak gain of this antenna are reported using simulations and measurements.
