Abstract

A high-gain broadband leaky-wave fed lens antenna with an integrated dielectric gratings polarizer covering the whole G-band (140-220GHz) is presented. This work focuses on the polarizer gratings manufacturing and in particular on the selection of plastic materials and the fabrication process refinement. The polarizer geometry has been designed and optimized to be compatible with standard milling techniques. A quasi-analytical method based on an analysis of the lens antenna in reception is used to validate the in-lens polarizer performance. Several prototypes have been fabricated, finally obtaining an excellent match between measurements and quasi-analytical results.
