Aperture Efficiency of Integrated-Circuit Horn Antennas

Authors:
Yong Guo, Karen Lee, Philip Stimson, Kent Potter, David Rutledge
Abstract:
We have improved the aperture efficiency of silicon integrated-circuit horn antennas by optimizing the length of the dipole probes and by coating the entire horn walls with gold. To make these measurements, we developed a new thin-film power density meter for measuring power density with accuracies better than 5%. The measured aperture efficiency improved from 44% to 72% at 93 GHz. This is sufficient for use in many applications which now use machined waveguide horns.
