    Abstract

    We provide for the first time the experimental characterization of a planarly fed ultrawideband leaky lens antenna. The paper includes the description and the experimental characterization of two antenna prototypes with radiating element realized in printed circuit board technology. The impedance parameters and the radiation patterns of the antennas have been measured showing excellent pattern quality and efficiency. The link between two antennas has also been characterized in the frequency and time domains in terms of mutual coupling impulse response respectively. Unprecedented performance in terms of pulse fidelity are demonstrated suggesting very high potentials of these antennas for all applications that require preservation of narrow pulses.
