A novel antenna element for low loss and low-profile dual-plane monopulse arrays is proposed. The travelling wave array has both sum and difference distributions in azimuth. The designed element is the unit cell of an interleaved slotted waveguide array feeding wideband printed antennas via probes inserted into waveguides from the slots. The use of printed antennas enhances the narrow sidelobe and efficiency bandwidth of the closely-spaced slotted waveguide arrays by up to 20%. The unit cells are modelled as multi-port networks including mutual-coupling effects between sum and difference elements placed in an interleaved manner. This enables a very accurate modelling of the coupling effects between sum and difference arrays.


An Interleaved LTSA Array on a Waveguide Beamformer with Dual-Plane Monopulse
Gultepe, Gokhan; Dogan, Doganay; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2019-01-01)
A monopulse antenna array is designed by using a novel element combining wideband linearly tapered slot antennas (LTSA) with an interleaved, closely-spaced, travelling wave slotted waveguide array (TWSWA) similar to [1-3]. To decrease the deteriorating coupling between sum and difference rows in previous studies for monopulse operation, adjacent rows of interleaved arrays are designed to have the same amplitude distribution but different propagation constants. So, interleaved arrays generate two simultaneou...
A Novel Input Impedance Computation Method for Coaxial Probe Fed Microstrip Antennas by Utilizing Characteristic Modes
Cetin, Metehan; Alatan, Lale (2017-07-14)
A method to efficiently compute the input impedance of the coaxial probe fed microstrip antennas by using characteristic modes is proposed in this paper. The efficiency is achieved by defining a discontinuous source current at the feed location that models the current injected by the probe. The input impedance is simply expressed in terms of modal excitation coefficients and eigenvalues of each mode.

Özgün, Ali; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
A microstrip patch antenna array with substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) feed network is designed and realized. With this configuration, waveguide which is advantageous in high frequency designs is integrated to antenna array in planar form by eliminating the drawback of the bulky structure of them. The design is based on an E-plane SIW power divider in multilayer form. For the feed network, a 4-way E-plane SIW power divider is constituted with 3-layered structure and an antenna system is obtained by merg...

Karaciğer, Kamil; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This thesis includes the design, simulation, production and measurement of an asymmetric coplanar strip folded dipole antenna suitable to be used as an element in a linear array operating at S-band (2.7 GHz - 3.3 GHz). In this same manner, its usefulness as an array antenna is also explored in this thesis. This antenna element consists of a microstrip line feed, microstrip to coplanar stripline transition (BALUN) and asymmetric coplanar strip (ACPS) folded dipole. The planar folded dipole can be constructed...

This paper proposes the configuration of a dual polarized wide-band patch antenna system suitable for indoor mobile communication applications. This configuration consists of two patch antennas, which have different feed structures from classical patch antenna configuration. These antennas, which are separated by a thin absorber to have a good isolation, are fed independently to obtain dual polarization. The antenna structure is designed, simulated, manufactured and measured. The operation bandwidth spans 1...
