Abstract:
An improved double ridged horn antenna (DRHA) is proposed in this paper. By adding the dielectric lens at the aperture of the horn, radiation pattern distortion arising in the high frequency band of conventional DRHA is improved, which leads to higher radiation gain. Meanwhile, ridge slot loading contributes to better impedance matching characteristic, broadening the impedance bandwidth efficiently. The improved antenna is fabricated and measured, with the measured results consist with the simulation perfectly, which proved the viability of the improvement.
