Ultra-Wideband, Directive and Circular Polarization Lens Antennas for Future Communications
Keywords: Lens antenna, Ultrawideband, Circular polarization, Equiangular spiral antenna
This paper presents a potential featured antenna for future wireless communication networks. The use of a hemispherical dielectric lens combined with an equiangular spiral printed antenna is proposed to achieve a radiator design with high gain, operating in a frequency range between 8.0 GHz to 15.6 GHz in circular polarization. Numerical analyses performed by the ANSYS HFSS software, and experimental measurements validated the functionality of the proposed structure, reaching gains greater than 14.2 dBi.
