Abstract

A novel approach for studying and designing lowcost anisotropic transmitarrays at sub-THz frequencies is presented here. The array comprises three metal layers and two interleaved dielectric spacers. A four-port equivalent circuit model is derived to accurately model the anisotropic behavior of the unit-cell. The analysis proves theoretically that nearly perfect transmission and complete phase control can be achieved at the same time. A systematic procedure optimizing the admittance tensor of the inner layer is described for the unit-cell design. A 3-bit transmitarray antenna at 300 GHz is fabricated using a standard printed circuit board process. The measured results demonstrate that the design methodology is effective even under strict technological constraints. The antenna achieves a peak gain of 32.2 dBi with 36.5% aperture efficiency and 70.4 GHz of 3-dB bandwidth.
