Abstract:
A circularly polarized antenna array design comprising of a feed network that splits an input signal into four orthogonal (0 , 90 , 180 , and 270 ) phased signals with equal magnitudes and connected to four anti-podal Vivaldi antennas sequentially rotated by 90 is presented. The proposed antenna array yields 10-dB return loss and 3-dB axial ratio bandwidths from 1–10 GHz. The symmetrical structure gives the antenna array almost identical azimuth and elevation radiation patterns. Pulse reception from various angles show equi-amplitude outputs and very little distortion. The proposed design is suited for high-resolution microwave imaging systems.
