Abstract:

An electromagnetic radiation interface is provided that is suitable for use with radio wave frequencies. A surface is provided with a plurality of electrically conductive bristles. A corresponding plurality of termination sections are provided so that each bristle is terminated with a termination section. The termination section may comprise one or more different termination packages for operating on received electromagnetic radiation andor producing desired reflections and transmissions. In one embodiment, switches and termination packages may be implemented within integrated circuits wherein the switches may be utilized to switch between different termination packages. The termination packages may include selected fixed reactances andor modulators designed to produce desired reflections, e.g., Doppler effects to make it appear the surface of the interface is moving a speed different than the actual speed.
