The mechanism by which a retrodirective Rotman lens operates is examined theoretically and prediction is compared with measurement. By deriving the reflection matrix based on the phase delay relationship between the beam ports and the array ports we show that if the phase delay difference between neighbouring ports is constrained in a particular way that the reflection matrix becomes an inverse diagonal matrix and the Rotman lens functions as a Van Atta Array hence can perform retrodirective reflection. Further, the primary factors governing the bandwidth and beam pointing error of the lens are elaborated.
