Design of a 38 dBi Slot Array on Gap Waveguide at 140 GHz
Paper in proceedings, 2019

In this paper, a cavity-backed full-corporate feed slot array antenna based on ridge gap waveguide at 140 GHz is presented. In order to fabricate the proposed slot array by computerized numerical control (CNC) milling technology, the length of metallic pins is selected as large as possible. Since the full-corporate feed networks are very dense, and only one row of metallic pins is required to isolate the coupling effect between any two neighbored distribution networks. In the work, height value of the bed nails are well selected so that the mutual coupling are below -20 dB. The simulated results show that the proposed array antenna has an input impedance bandwidth of 11% better than -10 dB. The bandwidth covers 135-150 GHz frequency band. The simulated gain is higher than 38 dBi over 135-150 GHz.
