Abstract

The paper presents a metamaterial based LTCC compressed Luneburg lens antenna for wireless communications. The antenna is designed at 60 GHz to utilize the unlicensed mm-wave spectrum available for short-range high-data-rate communications. The gradient index compressed Luneburg lens antenna is designed using the quasi-conformal transformation optics method. The design of the antenna is fully compliant with the standard LTCC process with a high-permittivity host material. The diameter of the antenna is 19 mm and the thickness is less than 2 mm. The peak antenna gain at 60 GHz of 16 dBi is demonstrated. Beam scanning capacity is demonstrated with 1 dB scan loss within ±25 degree field of view.
