In this paper, we propose the design of a broadband reflectarray which resort to a non-conventional shape radiating element to assure a large gain bandwidth. The element shape presents sufficient degrees of freedom to compensate the frequency variation of the differential spatial phase delay even when single-layer printed patches are employed.
