The aim of this book is to present the modern design principles andanalysis of lens antennas. It gives graduates and RF/Microwaveprofessionals the design insights in order to make full use of lensantennas. Why do we want to write a book in lens antennas?Because this topic has not been thoroughly publicized, itsimportance is underestimated. As antennas play a key role incommunication systems, recent development in wirelesscommunications would indeed benefit from the characteristics oflens antennas: low profile, and low cost etc. The major advantages of lens antennas are narrow beamwidth, highgain, low sidelobes and low noise temperature. Their structures canbe more compact and weigh less than horn antennas and parabolicantennas. Lens antennas with their quasi-optical characteristics,also have low loss, particularly at near millimeter andsubmillimeter wavelengths where they have particular advantages. This book systematically conducts advanced and up-to-datetreatment of lens antennas.

This book comprehensively reviews the state of the art in millimeter-wave antennas, traces important recent developments and provides information on a wide range of antenna configurations and applications. While fundamental theoretical aspects are discussed whenever necessary, the book primarily focuses on design principles and concepts, manufacture, measurement techniques, and practical results. Each of the various antenna types scalable to millimeter-wave dimensions is considered individually, with coverage of leaky-wave and surface-wave antennas, printed antennas, integrated antennas, and reflector and lens systems. The final two chapters address the subject from a systems perspective, providing an overview of supporting circuitry and examining in detail diverse millimeter-wave applications, including high-speed wireless communications, radio astronomy, and radar. The vast amount of information now available on millimeter-wave systems can be daunting for researchers and designers entering the field. This book offers readers essential guidance, helping them to gain a thorough understanding based on the most recent research findings and serving as a sound basis for informed decision-making.

Antennas represent a critical technology in any of these wireless systems. Not only do they directly affect the received power of the system, they are also typically the largest and most visible part. Recently, the need for low-cost, low-profile, and lightweight antenna in the frequency range of the microwave/millimeter wave/THz band has regained momentum. "Basic Principles of Fresnel Antenna Arrays" provides us a with the basics of the various Fresnel Antenna approaches, in order to achieve low-cost, low-profile, and lightweight antenna in the microwave/millimeter wave band. A potential solution of the antenna problem lies in using lens technology in an array. The Fresnel zone plate lens (FZPL) antenna is in particular an interesting candidate for the array element. The limiting focusing properties of FZPL including subwave length focus are described in detail. The book further presents a novel hexagonal FZPL antenna which can be more effectively packed in an array due to its shape. Before considering the hexagonal FZPL antenna in an array, the authors investigate two ideas, described as methods to potentially improve the radiation characteristics. The first idea is to change the reference phase of the Fresnel zone radii - a novel free parameter in the usual design of zone plate’s lenses and antennas. To further improve the radiation characteristics of the hexagonal FZPL antenna, a technique involving Fresnel zone rotation is investigated. The book is of interest for designers of optical systems because, taking scaling effects into account, the characteristics of diffractive quasioptical elements are valid for diffractive focusing elements of integrated optics.

In Volume 1 of this report we described the design and predictions for two reflector and lens Impulse Radiating Antennas (IRAs), with 23-centimeter diameters. In this report (Volume 2) we complete the measurements of those antennas, and the data is processed and compared to theory. Antenna measurements were obtained using the two-antenna technique. Using signal processing, we extracted the one-way antenna response. The boresight step response in transmission (impulse response in reception) was measured to be as fast as 25 Ps, Full Width Half Max (FWHM) for the reflector IRA, and 21 Ps for the lens IRA. The impulse response on boresight for the reflector antenna has an impulse area of 87% of the theoretically predicted value, and that for the lens is 101% of the predicted value. The angular dependence of the antennas was measured, and the half-power points for both antenna types occurred approximately four degrees off-axis for step-function excitation. The dielectric-filled lens antenna, while heavier, showed higher performance than the reflector IRA.
