Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 44, 239-249, 2013
Abstract
This paper presents method of moments based analysis of high-gain broad-band waveguide broad-wall longitudinal slot array antenna. Initially a basic two-element slot array antenna has been analyzed, and corresponding scattering parameter data have been obtained. The theoretical data have been compared with experimental data and Ansoft HFSS's simulated data to validate the proposed method. The excellent agreement obtained between the results validates the analysis. After validating the methodology attempts have been made to design a broad-band high-gain slot array antenna. An 18-element slot array antenna has been designed, fabricated and tested. The fabricated antenna provides a high gain over large band width.
