Optical antennas are an emerging concept in physical optics. Similar to radio-wave and microwave antennas, their purpose is to convert the energy of free propagating radiation to localized energy, and vice versa. Optical antennas ex-ploit the unique properties of metal nanostructures, which behave as strongly. Luneberg Lens for Wind Profiler About Wind Profiler Radar. A Luneberg Lens is used as the antenna in the Wind Profiler Radar. The system uses a plurality of mm-diameter antenna units. The number of antenna units can be selected according to the altitude to be measured.

A Luneburg lens (originally Lüneburg lens, often incorrectly spelled Luneberg lens) is a spherically symmetric gradient-index lens. A typical Luneburg lens's refractive index n decreases radially from the center to the outer surface.
They can be made for use with electromagnetic radiation from visible light to radio waves. lentille de lnberg. Located in Perols near Montpellier in the South of France, 3km from the A9 motorway, 1km from the airport, LUN’TECH (Luneberg Technologies) mainly designs and manufactures lenses using the Luneberg principle.
From this process of a spherical lens with a progressive variation of permittivity, have been created passive radar reflectors and antennas.
Antenna Theory - Lens - The antennas, which we have discussed till now, used the plane surface. The lens antennas use the curved surface for both transmission and reception. Lens anten. In this paper, a modified cylindrical Luneberg lens antenna is proposed for the microwave/millimeter wave imaging applications.
The proposed Luneberg lens is designed using the Teflon substrate.

Alkanhal, Hamsakutty Vettikaladi. Although the Luneburg lens has not found widespread applications as an antenna, Luneburg lens reflectors, which provide passive wideband and wide-angle radar sig- nature augmentation, have found steady applications in small military target drones, decoys, and marine vessels.

Antennas Propag., vol. 6, The Luneberg lens enables easy beam. Abstract. This chapter is subdivided into two sets of antennas that function on similar principles. While the reflector is known for shaping a beam in a particular direction (based on the location of a feed antenna) by using a reflecting aperture, a lens achieves a shaped beam by diffracting the signal from the source by: 1.

Microwave scanning antennas that contain a focal point, can be classed as optical scanners. In most cases, scanning is accomplished by moving the feed point along a focal line or over a focal surface.
A simple example of this type is the Luneberg lens, a spherically symmetric refracting structure that images the infinite sphere on the lens surface. Awhile back tele satellite magazine had something about this spherical antenna that acts like lens instead of a reflector.
A guy in Egypt was working on it and called it Farragsat. I thought it would be neat if this was combined with tech from flat panel systems by putting a narrow band 1/2 way. sidelobes (below −20 dB), as compared to conventional array antennas, where the side-lobe suppression can be a challenge and can cause false alarms in RADAR applications if their level is not reduced.
LENSANTENNADESIGN Fig.1 illustrates the underlying principle behind the design of the Luneburg lens antenna for wide-angle : Sidharath Jain, Raj Mittra.
Luneburg lens is a marvellous optical lens but is extremely difficult to be applied in any practical antenna system due to its large spherical shape. In this paper, we propose a transformation that reduces the profile of the original Luneburg lens without affecting its unique properties.
The new transformed slim lens is then discretized and simplified for a practical antenna application. Conical scanning is a system used in early radar units to improve their accuracy, as well as making it easier to steer the antenna properly to point at a target.
Conical scanning is similar in concept to the earlier lobe switching concept used on some of the earliest radars, and many examples of lobe switching sets were modified in the field to conical scanning during World. dielectric lens antennas, i.e. elliptic and hyperbolic.
Their particular features as well as behavior of radiating systems incorporating the lenses are investigated. Specific features of these lenses are discussed for both, near-field and far-field based on simulation and measurement results. Keywords Dielectric lens antennas, elliptic, hyperbolic,File Size: KB.
Adaptive Beamforming. e.g. the Luneberg lenses, also perform the aperture function for a system. The beamforming lenses meet an important set of requirements, e.g.
low cost, a moderate number of independent and simultaneous beams, wide-angle scanning, and wide instantaneous system bandwidth. as a directional radiator. Horn radiators may be fed by coaxial or other types of lines. Horns are constructed in a variety of shapes, as illustrated in figure The shape of the horn, along with the dimensions of the length and mouth, largely determines the beam’s shape.
The ratio of the horn’s length to mouth opening size determines the beamwidth and thus the directivity. Fabrication is implemented by a polymer jetting rapid prototyping method.
In the measurement, the lens antenna is fed by an X-band waveguide. The half-power beam width of the antenna is 14 degrees and no obvious side lobe is found in the measurement above the noise floor.
