Recently, a 3×3 connected array of dipoles has been presented for the first time for covering all allocated 5G bands in USA from 27.5 up to 72 GHz with a field of view of ±45°. Its limited scan range is due to packaging issues, confirming that fabrication and system architecture are key for such arrays. IETR has recently proposed CTS arrays links in the V- and E-bands. In D-band, a connected arrays in polystrata technology has been recently proposed with 4096 radiating elements.
The PhD project, available at IETR, Rennes, addresses three major goals: to propose a Green’s function approach for the analysis of connected arrays, to investigate the scanning capability and suitability of such antennas and to prototype and validate experimentally the numerical results.
