Broadband Beam-Steering with Focused Connected Arrays in Quasi-Optical Systems

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference


In this paper we propose an efficient integrated antenna solution based on a near-field focused connected array of slots on a membrane. The focused aperture provides (1) with broadband and highly efficient illumination of subsequent quasi-optical systems and (2) with the scanning capability inside a focusing system. The connected array antenna in turn allows for a fully planar solution that can synthesize a focused aperture whilst providing with broadband matching performance and low levels of crosspolarization.
