Abstract

A hybrid array configuration suitable for wideband millimeter-wave applications is presented in this work. The proposed structure is based on the use of circular waveguide elements electromagnetically coupled trough circular apertures to a stripline distribution network. The adopted excitation mechanism avoids the use of transition components generally reducing the overall antenna efficiency. Simulated and measured results on a K alpha-band prototype are discussed to prove the wideband radiation behavior.
