In this chapter is to present an overview of the microfluidically reconfigurable antennas by discussing antenna examples from the recent literature. The subsequent section briefly summarizes the fabrication and actuation techniques employed by several research groups. As a representative example, fabrication steps followed in for construction of a microfluidics-based mm-wave beam-steering antenna array. The remaining sections group the discussion on the microfluidically reconfigurable antennas under “flexible and stretchable liquid metal antennas”, “frequency-reconfigurable liquid metal antennas”, “reconfigurable antennas using dielectric liquids”, “beam-steerable liquid metal antennas”, and “reconfigurable antennas using microfluidically repositionable metallized plates”.
