An E-band cylindrical reflector antenna for wireless communication systems
Paper in proceedings, 2013

The increasing demand of radio links with high data rates is satisfied by the allocation of new frequency spectrum. A novel cylindrical reflector antenna is designed to operate in the E-band (71-86 GHz), which was already allocated in 2003 for radio link applications. Presented simulation results are preliminary and the directivity of the antenna at the center frequency is calculated to be 41.4 dBi with an aperture efficiency of 60% or -2.2dB.
