In this thesis, various K band power divider structures are developed using the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) technology. In the design and production of the 1 x 2 Y and T - Junction power dividers known as the conventional power divider types, good agreements are observed between measured and simulated S11 results. Also, the differences between simulated and measured S21 results are approximately 0.4 – 0.8 dB at the operating frequency. In addition to these, 1 x 4 dividers obtained by successive addition of the conventional structures are designed and produced. The designed and fabricated Y & Y and T & Y - Junction SIW power dividers have approximately 0.6 dB and 0.4 dB insertion loss differences between the measurement and simulation results respectively. Moreover, there are good agreements between the S11 simulation and measurement results. Furthermore, a novel 1 x 8 power divider is proposed for unequal power division operation. The proposed divider is designed and fabricated to provide almost equal phases and -20 dB SLL Taylor (ñ=3) amplitude distribution at output ports. 8x1 and 8x4 slotted SIW arrays, fed through this power divider, are designed, fabricated and measured. Measurement results are compared with the simulations to verify the designs and measured far fields agree very well with the simulated ones.

The aim of this thesis is to utilize Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRA) as array elements due to their advantages over other conventional antenna elements such as dipoles and microstrip patches. Depending on both the excitation mechanisms and the antenna shape, a Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) provides its designer multiple independent degrees of freedom. In this thesis three antenna shapes, namely hemispherical, cylindrical and rectangular DRAs, are investigated. The cylindrical and the rectangular sh...

This thesis presents novel traveling wave conformal shunt slot arrays on cylindrical substrate integrated waveguide (CSIW) placed on a cylindrical surface in the circumferential direction at K-band. Mutual couplings of longitudinal slots on broad wall of CSIW are formulated and active admittance formulas of the slots are derived which are used in Elliott’s design procedure to design slotted CSIW arrays. The designs are carried out at 25 GHz using non-uniform and uniform slot separations. The non uniform slo...

An unequal power divider with substrate integrated waveguide technology has been designed. This structure is compact in size and has the capacity to develop to the n-port unequal power divider. Its output powers ratio is also adjustable. The output powers can be easily change by varying the width of the output ports. The design procedure has been done analytically. Then a two-way unequal SIW power divider is designed. Simulation results of the proposed structure shows that return loss is below than10dB from...
