A Ridge Gap Waveguide fed apperture-coupled microstrip antenna array for 60 GHz applications
Paper in proceedings, 2017

This paper deals with the design of patch antenna arrays with Ridge Gap Waveguides (RGW) feed networks at 60-GHz band. An array of 64 radiating elements are designed and simulated to demonstrate the good performance of the proposed array. The proposed antenna shows the gain up to 22.6 dBi, efficiency higher than 80% and an impedance bandwidth of 13% covering 59-67 GHz. The results are valuable for the design and evaluation of wideband planar antenna arrays at millimeter-wave frequencies.
