Description

The interest for mm- and sub-mm-wave systems has grown in the last years, mostly driven by communications and radar industries. In this context, not only new wideband high-gain antenna concepts are needed, but also advances in the applied antenna measurement procedures. In particular, the characterization of circularly polarized antennas represents a challenge in the higher frequencies, as the difficulty of achieving accurate phase measurements increases. In this work, the experimental characterization of a circularly polarized lens antenna in G-band (140-220GHz) is presented. Accurate measurement results are reached for the circularly polarized fields, showing excellent agreement with simulations.
