Bootlace lens is the most appropriate choice for multiple beam forming. A compact symmetric bootlace lens has been developed. Here, a theoretical modal is developed which predicts the primary amplitude distribution across the array port of the lens. Amplitude distribution depends upon the gain performance of array contour of the lens. This theoretical modal develops a symmetric bootlace lens without complex analysis.
