Abstract

A thin phase-correcting element that consists of four identical metallic and three identical dielectric layers is presented for the design of microwave and millimeter-wave transmitarrays. The metallic layers consist of the octagon conducting strip, which are tuned to obtain the desired phase compensation on an incident wave, while maintaining a high amplitude of transmission coefficient. A transmitarray is designed at K band using the element. Fed by a standard horn and three planar slot-fed patch antennas with different beamwidths alternately, the wave-focusing performance of the transmitarray was demonstrated by simulations and experiments.
