Abstract

A flat wideband lens antenna operating in Ka band is designed. The design corresponds to the transformation of an hyperbolic lens via quasi-optic transformation into a flat lens. The implementation of the lens is made using 3D printing technology. Simulations accounting for the exact replica of the manufactured lens (including the details of the patterns created by the printer) are made. The experimental results show an excellent agreement with the simulations, including low losses. The presented design is a low cost antenna providing gains above 23 dBi in the whole Ka band.
