A Low Cost Pencil-beam Microstrip Antenna at 76.5 GHz

This article describes the design of a 76.5 GHz microstrip antenna using a simple waveguide distributor. This type of antenna permits any complicated radiation pattern to be obtained. It can be used as part of the transmit/receive module for a compact ...
The design of a millimeter-wave antenna with a pencil-beam pattern is complicated when using a slotted waveguide and results in unacceptable dissipating losses, as high as 8 to 10 dB for a microstrip (RT duroid or Cu/PTFE substrate) distributor. This is why most submillimeter-wave antenna designers avoid traditional VHF...
