0.7-20-GHz Dual-Polarized Bilateral Tapered Slot Antenna for EMC Measurements
An asymmetric wideband dual-polarized bilateral tapered slot antenna (DBTSA) is proposed in this letter for wireless EMC measurements. The DBTSA is formed by two bilateral tapered slot antennas designed with low cross polarization. With careful design, the achieved DBTSA not only has a wide operating frequency band, but also maintains a single main-beam from 700 MHz to 20 GHz. This is a significant improvement compared to the conventional dual-polarized tapered slot antennas, which suffer from main-beam split in the high-frequency band. The innovative asymmetric configuration of the proposed DBTSA significantly reduces the field coupling between the two antenna elements, so that low cross polarization and high port isolation are obtained across the entire frequency range. All these intriguing characteristics make the proposed DBTSA a good candidate for a dual-polarized sensor antenna for wireless EMC measurements.
