Abstract:
A technique has been developed for the economical construction of arrays of efficient corrugated conical feedhorns for use in multiple beam antenna systems. These horns, called "platelet horns", are constructed from platelets, thin metallic plates in which holes are photoetched and which are then stacked and diffusion bonded together to form a monolithic structure with internal features. This technique was first demonstrated by the fabrication and test of a nine element array for W-Band. Since that demonstration, this technique has been further advanced with the fabrication and test of a 16-element array of profiled corrugated horns for W-Band as well as an array for 550 - 750 GHz operation. This paper presents the results of performance measurements of these arrays at W-band and at 527 GHz and 762 GHz.
