Design of Substrate Integrated Folded Waveguide h -Plane Horn Antenna Array with Simultaneous Omnidirectional and Directional Radiation Characteristics
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 107, 141-154, 2022
Abstract
A compact substrate integrated folded waveguide (SIFW) H-plane horn antenna array with simultaneous omnidirectional and directional radiation characteristics for potential utilization to high-speed wireless communication is presented in this article. The realization of the proposed design has been accomplished by placing the apertures of nine exponentially tapered SIFW H-plane horns towards the circumference of a cylindrical substrate with an angular separation of 40˚ between the horns. Every horn flaring includes a column of three slots. Centre probe feed technique has been used to excite the antenna. The radiation of the field by the horn apertures and through the slots of the horns flaring, respectively, results in an omnidirectional and a directional radiation pattern at 13.8 GHz and 18.42 GHz, with the gain of 7 dBi and 10.92 dBi. The proposed antenna has performed well and is in good agreement between simulation and measurement. The dimension of the antenna is 37.3 mm (diameter) × 1 mm (height) (1.710×0.0460 at 13.8 GHz and 2.29λ0×0.061λ0 at 18.42 GHz). SIFW technology makes low profile antenna. The proposed design can be a promising option to be used as a low-profile antenna for high-speed wireless communication.
