Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


A Ka-band (27 to 32 GHz) planar antipodal linearly-tapered slot antenna (ALTSA) is designed, fabricated and measured, The numerical simulation was performed by 3D finite-element method (FEM). The printed ALTSA has been realized by using an RT/Duroid printed circuit board (PCB) substrate, The realized Ka-band ALTSA is characterized by broadband, high gain (approximately 14.5 dB at 30 GHz) and easy fabrication. The ALTSA could be a good choice in Ka-band local multipoint distributed systems (LMDS).
