Paper Abstract

The Fresnel zone plate antenna is an example of an optical analogy that has been transferred to microwave/millimeter wavelength use. The latter case has seen extensive research and application, and in the past dozen years more than seventy relevant papers have been published on a worldwide basis. These studies have dealt with either lens or reflector designs, and have quantified many parameters, such as gain, antenna patterns, efficiency, bandwidth, and structural options. The most recent designs have dealt with high efficiency or dual band configurations. This report will summarize the many advances of the past few years, and will provide some parametric design tradeoffs.
