Paper Abstract

A practical design of a compact integrated Rotman lens is presented, which will be used as a beamformer of multiple beam antenna arrays in wireless indoor communication network. An improved design equations of integrated Rotman lens is derived to calculate the lens contour and a non-circular focal arc is introduced in beam ports to minimize the phase aberrations on the aperture of array. A log-periodic electromagnetic coupling microstrip patch array is adopted as radiation elements. Both theoretical and experimental results show the designed multiple beam antenna has wide band width performance.
