Abstract

In this paper, a leaky-wave fed lens antenna working at G-band for future XG communications is presented. A lens with a diameter of 16λ0is proposed in HDPE material with a feed matching better than-10dB over a 45% of relative bandwidth. Analytical tools have been applied to achieve an aperture efficiency higher than 80% in the entire frequency band. One prototype have been fabricated and measured and the results agree well with the generated from both analytical approach and full-wave simulations.
