Abstract

The dual exponentially tapered slot antenna (DETSA) is a low-profile slotline radiator that is a modified form of a Vivaldi radiator. The DETSA is created by taking a Vivaldi radiator and tapering the outside edge of the slotline conductors. The shape of the outside edge of the slotline conductors adds additional antenna design degrees of freedom. This paper describes how the different shape parameters of the DETSA impact antenna performance.
