Link characteristics of directional surface wave antenna arrays

Abstract

This paper characterizes the link performance of small antenna arrays at 60 GHz that are intentionally designed to enhance surface wave coupling. The antennas designed are low profile and can be used in cases when it is desired to have transmit and receive antennas in the same plane. The total link power between the surface wave antenna arrays contains both space and surface waves. The goal of this work is to quantify the percentage of the overall link power in each type of wave and determine the model coefficients for extrapolation at larger distances. Knowing the relative contribution of the two types of waves serves as a useful tool for optimizing overall link and network performance.
