Abstract

We present a theoretical analysis, along with numerical and experimental results of an off-axis beaming Bull's-Eye (BE) antenna working at 96 GHz. The antenna presents a 17 dB gain beam pointing at 16.5º, with -10dB side lobe level and 3.5º beamwidth. The prototype is fabricated by 3D printing stereolitography and then copper-coated, resulting in a 75% weight reduction compared to a fully metal fabricated design. Interesting applications in the fields of microsatellites, unmanned aerial vehicles or point-to-point communications are envisioned.
