Arbitrary Beam Shaping Using 1-D Impedance Surfaces Supporting Leaky Waves

Abstract

A technique for generating an arbitrary, prescribed radiation pattern from a 1-D leaky-wave antenna is presented. The technique is applied to leaky-wave impedance surfaces. A homogenized model for an impedance surface is used so that the work is not limited to particular geometries. The model consists of a grounded, uniaxial dielectric substrate topped by a… (More)
