Characteristics of a dielectric antenna for the millimeter range of wavelengths

A. P. Krut’ko, V. A. Obolonskii, B. M. Shevchuk


The paper presents results of an experimental investigation of radiation characteristics of rod dielectric antennas used as primary radiators for microwave reception-transmission modules. It is shown that elongation of the rods with the aid of hollow conical sections makes it possible to narrow the main lobe and to lower the side lobe levels.
