Abstract:
A transmitting lens antenna using Huygens matematerials is proposed. The type of metamaterial has a 100% transmission. For obtaining a high gain antenna, a patch antenna is placed at the focal point of the metasurface as a feed source, and then quasi-spherical wave can be transformed to plane wave. As demonstration of the concept, a lens antenna, working at frequency of 10 GHz is designed, fabricated and measured. Numerical and experimental results agree well with each other. The measured results show that the gain has been enhanced about 11.2 dB.
