Broadside array vs end fire array 1. Assignment 3. Broadside Antenna — A broadside array is a stacked collinear antenna consisting of half-wave dipoles spaced from one another by one-half wavelengths. End-Fire Antenna — The end-fire array uses two half-wave dipoles spaced one-half wavelength apart.

The proposed planar array could be integrated with the transceivers on the low-cost printed circuit boards PCBs to reduce the manufacturing cost The antenna is designed on a low-cost FR4 substrate with thickness, diel The synthesis of compromise sum and difference patterns of large planar arrays is addressed in this letter by means of a suitable implementation of the Contiguous Partition Method CPM.
By exploiting some properties of the solution space, the generation of compromise sum-difference patterns is recast as the searching of the optimal path in a graph that codes the admissible solution space. Some numerical experiments are provided in order to assess the effectiveness of the proposed method. Planar arrays of waveguide-fed slots have been employed in many radar and remote sensing applications.
Such arrays are designed in the standing wave configuration because of high efficiency. Traveling wave arrays can produce greater bandwidth at the expense of efficiency due to power loss in the load or loads. Traveling wave planar slot arrays may be designed with a long feed waveguide consisting of centered-inclined coupling slots. The feed waveguide is terminated in a matched load, and the element spacing in the feed waveguide is chosen to produce a beam squinted from the broadside. The traveling wave planar slot array consists of a long feed waveguide containing resonant-centered inclined coupling slots in the broad wall, coupling power into an array of stacked radiating waveguides orthogonal to it.
The radiating waveguides consist of longitudinal offset radiating slots in a standing wave configuration.
For the traveling wave feed of a planar slot array , one has to design the tilt angle and length of each coupling slot such that the amplitude and phase of excitation of each radiating waveguide are close to the desired values. The coupling slot spacing is chosen for an appropriate beam squint. Scattering matrix parameters of resonant coupling slots are used in the design process to produce appropriate excitations of radiating waveguides with constraints placed only on amplitudes.
Since the radiating slots in each radiating waveguide are designed to produce a certain total admittance, the scattering S matrix of each coupling slot is reduced to a 2x2 matrix. Elements of each 2x2 S-matrix and the amount of coupling into the corresponding radiating waveguide are expressed in terms of the element S S matrices are converted into transmission T matrices, and the T matrices are multiplied to cascade the coupling slots and waveguide sections, starting from the load end and proceeding towards the source.
While the use of non-resonant coupling slots may provide an. This paper introduces a planar switchable 3D-coverage phased array for 28 GHz mobile terminal applications. In order to realize 3D-coverage beam scan with a simple planar array , chassis surface waves are efficiently excited and controlled by three identical slot subarrays. Three subarrays switch Phased array antenna control. Several new and useful improvements in steering and control of phased array antennas having a small number of elements, typically on the order of 5 to 17 elements are provided.
Among the improvements are increasing the number of beam steering positions, reducing the possibility of phase transients in signals received or transmitted with the antennas , and increasing control and testing capacity with respect to the antennas. The formulation of planar near-field measurements of GPR antennas determines the plane-wave spectra of the GPR antenna in terms of measurements obtained with a buried probe as the GPR antenna moves over a scan plane on the ground. A numerical study investigates how the formulation is affected by The key advantage of using this sort of super structures is that they are planar and thus very cheap to manufacture with.

When non-cooled systems are used, the losses of microstrip or coplanar waveguide lines impede the use of standard patch or slot antennas for a large number of elements in a phased array format. Traditionally, this problem has been solved by using silicon lenses. However, if an array of such highly directive antennas is to be used for imaging applications, the fabrication of many closely spaced lenses becomes a problem.

Moreover, planar antennas are usually fed by microstrip or coplanar waveguides while the mixer or the detector elements usually Schottky diodes are coupled in a waveguide environment. Antennas excited by a waveguide TE10 mode makes use of dielectric superlayers to increase the directivity. These antennas create a kind of Fabry- Perot cavity between the ground plane and the first layer of dielectric.
In reality, the antenna operates as a leaky wave mode where a leaky wave pole propagates along the cavity while it radiates. Thanks to this pole, the directivity of a small antenna is considerably enhanced. The antenna consists of a waveguide feed, which can be coupled to a mixer or detector such as a Schottky diode via a standard probe design. The waveguide is loaded with a double-slot iris to perform an impedance match and to suppress undesired modes that can propagate on the cavity. On top of the slot there is an air cavity and on top, a small portion of a hemispherical lens.
The fractional bandwidth of such antennas is around 10 percent, which is good enough for heterodyne imaging applications. The new geometry makes use of a silicon lens instead of dielectric quarter wavelength substrates. This design presents several advantages when used in the submillimeter.

This book presents electromagnetic EM design and analysis of dipole antenna array over high impedance substrate HIS. HIS is a preferred substrate for low-profile antenna design, owing to its unique boundary conditions.
Such substrates permit radiating elements to be printed on them without any disturbance in the radiation characteristics. Moreover HIS provides improved impedance matching, enhanced bandwidth, and increased broadside directivity owing to total reflection from the reactive surface and high input impedance. This book considers different configurations of HIS for array design on planar and non- planar high-impedance surfaces.
