EBG Enhanced Feeds for the Improvement of the Aperture Efficiency of Reflector Antennas

Abstract

We describe the use of electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) super-layers to improve the shape of reflectors illumination function. Following an investigation of the leaky wave pole singularities of the EBG Green's function, the shape of the radiation patterns of small apertures in ground planes are optimized. The maximization of the reflector aperture efficiency… (More)
