Abstract

A double-side radiating leaky-wave antenna based on composite right/left-handed (CRLH) coplanar-waveguide (CPW) is proposed. Dispersion diagram of the unit cell is investigated, and balanced property is confirmed. Thus, the CRLH leaky-wave antenna can have backfire radiation due to the left-handed property of the CRLH structure and broadside radiation at the balancing frequency point. The measured results show that the proposed antenna can offer a scanning angle covering almost backfire-to-endfire directions.
