Design of a four-element horn antenna array fed by inverted microstrip gap waveguide
Paper in proceedings, 2013

The paper presents the design of a four-element slot coupled dual-mode horn array with microstrip gap waveguide as feed network. We present simulated results for return loss for the feed network both with and without the radiating horn array. We also compare results for two ways to generate the stopband of the parallel-plate modes: the ideal Perfect Magnetic Conductor used during the initial design, and the real bed of nails used in the practical realization. The study is performed at 60 GHz obtaining about 10% bandwidth.
