abstract

  • The design of a planar slot array in groove gap waveguide technology implemented by glide-symmetric holes as Electromagnetic Band Gap structure is here presented. Despite the advantages of using holes instead of pins in terms of manufacturing simplicity and cost,the larger size of the holes compared to pins needs to be considered when designing slot arrays without grating lobes. A 1 to 4 corporate feed network is designed using this technology as well. Corrugations are included to further reduce the grating lobes. Experimental results support the viability of the proposed concept for designing glide-symmetric planar arrays of any size.
