Slot Array Design

This is the first comprehensive treatment of slotted waveguide array antennas from an engineering perspective. It provides readers with a thorough foundation in applicable theories as well as hands-on instruction for practical analysis and design of important types of waveguide slot arrays.'Slotted Waveguide Array Antennas' goes beyond some of the commonly discussed topics and ventures into areas that include: higher order mode coupling and edge effects; performance optimization in terms of bandwidth and pattern performance; special slot excitation methods; applications such as monopulse and phase steering; and manufacturing tolerances.With specific examples of waveguide array designs accompanied by detailed illustrations and antenna characteristics and many applications, this is a must-have reference for engineers involved in the design and development of slotted waveguide arrays. Additional value is provided by a thorough overview of the related literature in the field and the introductory chapters include the history of these antennas.

Waveguide Slot Array Antenna Design

Slotted array antennas are popularly used in radar applications, in which case design standards require mechanical robustness and high gains. Because the power transmission of radar antennas is very high, slot array antennas are preferred alternatives to planar arrays. Read on for a simple guide to the basic elements of slotted array antennas. Slot antennas in waveguides provide an economical way of the design of antenna arrays. The position, shape and orientation of the slots will determine how (or if) they radiate. Figure 3 shows a rectangular waveguide with a drawn with red lines snapshot of the schematic current distribution in the waveguide walls.
