4×4 magneto-electric dipole array with single-layer corporate-feed ridge gap waveguide for mmWave applications
Paper in proceeding, 2021

This paper presents simulations results of a 4×4 magneto-electric dipole (MED) array antenna fed by a single- layer corporate-feed ridge gap waveguide (RGW) for millimeter wave applications. The designed antenna model consists of two unconnected metal layers: the top radiating layer and the bottom corporate-feed RGW layer. Hence, the antenna profile can be lowered since no intermediate cavity layer is required. The MED radiating element shows a larger impedance bandwidth compared to the conventional single layer array antenna. The S11 ≤ -10 dB bandwidth of the simulated antenna is from 24 - 29 GHz, resulting in a 18.9% impedance bandwidth. The realized antenna gain is greater than approximately 19.6 dBi.
