reflectarray antenna phase detection

hi antenna experts. i designed a Reflectarray unit cell with proper phase shift in CST. i used unit cells in array and fed it by a horn antenna. the solution type is integral equation. now i want to know how can i gain the phase of each element(phase of fields or reflection phase ) after feeding by (...)

elements phase arrangement in CST (Reflectarray)

Hi all. I'm working on Reflectarray. i have designed my unit cell by CST. after designing the unit cell i placed the cells in array form and excite it with a horn antenna. now, each element have it's own phase in re radiating field. so we should know the element phases to compensate them to make all elements radiate in phase, but we (...)

Obtaining a horn feed parabolic reflector far field propagation pattern

I have a horn antenna working at 144GHz with A=12mm and B=14mm. Then I'll illuminate a satellite dish of 57cm diameter with this antenna, with the feed located at the focal point of the parabola. I have the radiation pattern of the horn, made with MATLAB. The goal is to know the beam propagation (power (...)

Design Fresnel zone plate antenna in HFSS.

125997 Any one help me to design Fresnel zone plate antenna in HFSS. The design has two elements. (1) A plate having circular rings of different radii. It can be made by printed technology on RT/duroid 5880. and (2) horn antenna as a feed. My doubt is how can I simulate this complete design (plate+horn)? (...)

Offset Feed Horn Port Setup

Hi, Please can someone guide me how to assign the port for the offset feed horn? For the focus feed horn, we have the aligned feeding towards our antenna but if we need to make it offset, we need to tilt it so it makes the feeding no longer align with the antenna. So my friend told me to use coaxial probe (...)

Total E field gain calculation from anechoic chamber

Hi, I have radiation pattern results from anechoic chamber which I need to plot. The data which I have are the XY, XZ and the YZ plan each with co and cross pol data. I did the necessary calculation using the horn antenna(source) gain values. Now, how do I calculate the total E field gain? Example, in XY co pol at 5GHz, I (...)

How to metalize selected faces on a 3D structure? Has anyone ever done this before?

Hi, If I understand you correctly, you are trying to model a realistic version of a horn antenna that could be 3D printed. You could model the horn with ABS material, for example, and then pick the internal faces and create shape from picked face and model that as gold (...)

Simulation of Fresnel zone plate antenna in HFSS

I want to simulate the plate as a reflector (by placing horn in front of plate) Assign a waveport excitation the the waveguide feed of the horn. Place the horn and the pate in a vacuum, where the edges of the vacuum box are at least a quarter wavelength away from the horn and plate. (...)

Why do I get back radiation when simulating this horn antenna??

Have you studied the currents on the outside surface of your horn antenna, particularly around the mouth of the horn? It sounds like you might have high currents that are leaking back onto the outer surface of your antenna, and these currents might be creating the radiation. I think there is a Field (...)

3D printers, circuit board machines, etc?

With the EXPLOSION of 3d printing, has anyone come across a LOW COST way to fabricate microwave components for prototyping? I mean a method of making precision tolerance microstrip on FR4 or Duroid for maybe under $500? Or a way of making waveguide and antenna horn type components from sintered metals for maybe under$1000? It (...)

Feed Horn Antenna Design

As you know nothing about antenna design, find and study a good textbook, like Kraus, J.D. antennas, and Kraus, Radio Astronomy. yes an awesome place to start to learn the basics and more you also need to decide up front what frequencies you want to receive. You are only going to use a dish (...)

What exactly is (Horn) Antenna Gain

if you are in the garden, and have a rubber hose flowing with water...the water comes out at say 1 gallon per minute, in a wide gushing flow. You now screw on a nozzle at the end of the hose, and the pressure builds up, and the water starts to stream in a pencil thin beam, 20 feet away, but still at 1 gallon per minute...just more (...)

Plane of Incidence for the wave transmitted with Horn Antenna.

Q1: Suppose horn antenna is used to transmit wave toward a target equipment under test (EUT), then what is the plane of incidence. Since with reference to the Incidence plane, TE and TM is defined. Plane of Incidence is a plane perpendicular to the EUT surface which also contain the incidence wave. Q2: Is any formula available to (...)

Measuring Freq of Doppler Radar Antenna

a spectrum analyzer with a horn antenna nearby will do it....would start with a 30 dB attenuator pad in between the antenna and the analyzer. You can "max hold" the spectrum analyzer and after many passes figure out the frequency. If you have access to the hardware, you could insert a directional coupler (...)

double ridged waveguide

hi everybody. I'm designing a wideband (6-18GHz) double ridged horn antenna. the waveguide that i want to use is WRD650. and it can operate in 6-18GHz. I used HFSS to design the waveguide , and the S11 was very bad(about -4dB). it means that no wave propagate inside the waveguide. i used PML at the end of (...)

cheapest manufacturing process for low volume horn antenna production?

I recently heard of a group having success with electroplating designs constructed with conductive ABS plastic on a 3D printer. I'm dying to try it and see if it finally makes it possible to prototype corrugated horns!

slant polarization for horn antenna

Try a quarter-wave plate inserted in the feed waveguide diagonal. Use a thin Teflon plate or a similar dielectric. I doubt it could work over the extremely wide bandwidth, though. Why you simply do not tilt the horns by 45 degrees?

What foamed/pore plastic used in some horn / satellite/ etc. antennas?

Sometimes it is machined to form a Frensel lens, sometimes it is very thick, even thicker than a wavelength and allows to make durable horn with very thick metal around it. I want to know what is that material, it looks like there are many small pores in it, very lightweight, different in color, white, gray/yellow, black. I guess with good charact

Help needed for determining lengths of coax and port cap for pyramidal horn antenna

I need help in determining the length of coax and portcap for pyramidal horn antenna. I m using a SMA connector female 4 hole mount. Inner diameter 1.3mm and outer diameter 4mm. I m using HFSS.

guided wavelength and effective aperture

If you use a horn antenna with a waveguide feeder, then in the waveguide the lambda is the guide wavelength and outside horn aperture the lambda is in the air. The horn or another antenna transforms the guided wave into the free-space wave. antenna aperture is the geometric (...)

Design Pyramidal horn antenna Using HFSS

use antenna design kit for horn antenna .. That's certainly a start and gets one a horn drawn easily, which is paramaterized so you can change values easily. But if I recall correctly, one can only specifiy the frequency and waveguide size of the horn - not the gain. At (...)

What's the best method to design a narrow band pyramidal horn antenna?

I'm looking to try to design a pryamidal horn antenna for the 3 cm amateur band (10.0 to 10.5 GHz) to mount to WR90 (WG16) waveguide. I'd like to look at antenna deisgns with gains in the range of 15 to 25 dBi. Anything less than 15 dBi is not really good enough, and anything greater than 25 dBi looks to (...)

Surface mounted HORN??

in my experience, you can have a patch antenna excite a standard waveguide horn. It works ok. It is especially useful if you need isolation between multiple antennas, as in a cw radar with a transmit and two receive horns. If you just had 3 patches on the same board, the leakage between (...)

I designed it with Integral equation solver in CST MWS software, but when i placed horn in front of a reflector and run it in transient solver, patterns are lost. I do not what can i do, Please help meeeeee I needed it very soon my email:

is it possible to have circular polarization with a recatangular horn antenna?

Thanks jiripolivka for your fine explanation, got two more questions... :) Why a rectangular waveguide creates elliptical polarization? is it because of the unequal lengths of the two sides of the rectangular cross section? Then, if we insert a quarter wave plate into a circular waveguide, will it create circular
