A microfluidic Fabry-Perot Cavity (FPC) antenna system is presented with split beam in the near-field. For this purpose, fluidic housing, which is made of polydimethylsilone (PDMS), is used and integrated into the FPC system. The FPC system consists of a slot antenna and frequency selective surface (FSS). Two FSS designs with rectangular apertures are considered: augmented and microfluidic FSS arrays. Each is designed, modeled, and tested for comparison in the FPC system.
