A novel compact dual-band pattern diversity antenna is proposed. Dual-band reconfigurable frequency-selective reflectors are designed and applied to form a right-angle corner reflector antenna with reconfigurable patterns. With only one switch, the reconfigurable frequency-selective reflector can be controlled to be transmissive or reflective to vertically polarized waves at 2.45 and 5.25 GHz. By changing the combinations of the switch states, multiple patterns can be obtained. A dual-band feeding antenna designed via using the coupling effects is made to achieve well-matching conditions in all circumstances corresponding to various switch states at both frequencies. The measured results show good agreement with the calculated ones and demonstrate good pattern diversity virtues.
