This paper presents a fast and accurate synthesis process applied to a printed reflectarray working in dualpolarization in Ku band. The used elementary cell is the slotloaded patch offering numerous geometrical parameters to tune the desired reflected phase. Different cell selection strategies are proposed and compared to generate layouts with optimized characteristics. Three layouts have been designed, fabricated and measured in order to assess the proposed strategies.
