2016 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, ISSN 0018-926X, E-ISSN 1558-2221, Vol. 64, no 5, 2055-2060 p.Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
A novel leaky-wave antenna, realized using gap waveguide concept, is here proposed. Both, the feeding structure and the antenna are realized in groove gap waveguide technology, thus simplifying the whole structure. A complete design procedure, starting from a given groove waveguide to the final radiation mechanism, is described in this communication. The results are supported with measurements of a prototype that operates in the X-band. The realized antenna has a gain around 18 dB between 9 and 11.5 GHz, demonstrating the potential of the proposed radiation technology.
