Design of a Planar Wideband Yagi-Uda Antenna for Millimeter Wave SAR Imaging Application
In this paper, a wideband planar Yagi-Uda antenna was designed for millimeter wave synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging application. A series of simulations were performed to investigate the effect of each part of the antenna on its radiation characteristics. The designed antenna can achieve ~16% (~55-65 GHz) bandwidth (S11<-10 dB), ~7 dB gain, and ~85 and 90 half-power beam-width (HPBW) in the E-and H-planes, respectively. Subsequently, the antenna was manufactured and tested, showing close agreement between its simulated and measured characteristics. Finally, the imaging performance of the designed antenna was examined through several SAR imaging experiments.
