A complete system modeling and characterization of a wideband differential terahertz (THz) direct detector, integrated in a commercial CMOS technology, is presented. The detector consists of a recently developed double leaky-slot lens antenna that operates from 200 to 600 GHz in combination with a differential Schottky barrier diode (SBD) direct...

We present the unit cell design of a wideband wide-scanning phased array operating in both Ku- and Ka-bands, for satellite communication applications. The radiating elements are dual-polarized connected slots loaded with an artificial dielectric superstrate, acting as a wide angle impedance matching (WAIM) structure. The design of the multi...

Three-dimensional body scanning systems are increasingly used in sensitive public areas such as airports. By providing a high resolution image of a person from all sides, it is possible to detect potential metallic, ceramic and explosive threats. For these systems, it is essential to design broadband antennas with a fan beam, highly directional...

In this letter, we present a design of a linear array of tilted dipoles to achieve radiation patterns with asymmetric angular filtering characteristics. To realize the asymmetric radiation, the dipole elements are spaced by a distance larger than half a wavelength, thus allowing for grating lobes to occur in the visible region. Moreover, the...

We propose a systematic approach to describe planar slot antennas, embedded in generic stratified media. An equivalent transmission line model for the slot is proposed, based on a spectral domain analysis. First, we introduce a method of moments solution to model semi-infinite slots, fed by a deltagap excitation. The solution entails only two...

We present a general analysis to describe non-periodic artificial dielectric layers (ADLs). Closed-form expressions for the equivalent layer impedance are given for generic plane-wave incidence, assuming that each individual layer can differ from the others in terms of geometrical parameters. By dropping the assumption of identical layers,...

One of the common requirements for wideband wide-scanning arrays in multifunctional platforms is the polarization agility. Cross-polarization levels should be kept low within the entire field of view and frequency band of operation. However, good polarization purity is hard to achieve especially for arrays that are designed to operate over multi...

In this work, antenna arrays with tilted dipoles are investigated in terms of radiation and impedance properties. A spectral method of moments (MoM) was developed for the analysis of doubly-periodic arrays (i.e. periodic in both x and ydirections)<br/>with arbitrarily tilted dipole elements, in free space or in the presence of a backing...

We present the design of an array of tilted dipoles loaded with artificial dielectrics, to achieve asymmetric radiation patterns. First, a simplified array element consisting of skewed stacked dipoles in the presence of a backing reflector is studied, by means of a dedicated spectral periodic method of moments (MoM). The analysis of the stacked...

A 12-pixel THz Focal Plane Array (FPA), integrated in Global Foundries 22nm CMOS technology, enabling high resolution passive THz imaging, is presented. The array efficiently couples blackbody radiation from 200 GHz to 600 GHz to Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBDs) in a differential topology. An antenna-detector co-design results in an average...

Connected arrays of slots loaded with artificial dielectric layers have been proposed to realize wideband phased arrays with large scan capability. The role of the artificial dielectric superstrate is to provide a wide angle impedance matching transformation from the impedance at the feeding port of the unit cell to the free space impedance....

Antenna arrays located on airplanes or other mobile platforms for satellite communication applications are typically required to support very large scan angles (close to end-_re). How- ever, planar antenna arrays are typically characterized by scan loss. To increase the scan range conformal arrays and multi-panel configuration can be found in...

In this work we report on the design, manufacturing and testing of a dual-polarized array of connected slots radiating in the presence of an artificial dielectric superstrate. The prototype array consists of 512 elements, i.e. 16×16 connected slots for each of the two polarizations. The antenna array is realized with a single multi-layer printed...

The optical performance of a wideband double bowtie slot antenna, implemented in 28nm CMOS technology, is evaluated. The antenna serves as a verification antenna for an uncooled single-pixel radiometer operating from 200 GHz to 600 GHz. The performance is evaluated in terms of radiometric pattern that is derived from the measured radiation...

Closed-form expressions to describe artificial dielectric layers (ADLs) with finite conductivity are presented. The propagation of a generic plane wave within the artificial material is described by means of transmission line models, where each layer is represented as an equivalent shunt impedance. The given analytical formulas for the shunt...

A five-layer frequency selective surface (FSS) composed of subwavelength elements with large harmonic rejection bandwidth is presented. The FSS design is based on an equivalent circuit model, where the interlayer interaction is only described with a single transmission line representing the fundamental Floquet wave. A prototype of the...
