Broadband waveguide radiators in phased antenna arrays with linear polarization

Phased antenna arrays (PAA) of waveguides with complex cross sections are analyzed in this work. Particularly, the analysis focuses on linearly polarized waveguides with dielectric matching units (inserts, covers and waveguide transformers). The study of power and frequency characteristics of these PAA in scanning sectors is included. An optimization method for the design of this kind of arrays in order to achieve broad frequency band and scanning sectors is also presented.

About the inaccuracy of measuring the directivity factor and directional diagrams of antennas at a short distance

The first three terms of the asymptotic decomposition of the transfer ration between two antennas with arbitrary directional diagrams and polarization types are obtained. The formulas for the distance that can be used to measure primary and lateral radiation with the given inaccuracy are derived.
