Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate the Huygens’ box antenna. We show that we can synthesize waves in a region enclosed by an active metasurface, and that by allowing the wave synthesized in such a cavity to leak out through an aperture a highly directive antenna can be formed. We present simulation results and compare these results to those obtainable from a microstrip patch array of the same aperture size as our Huygens’ box antenna. We show that similar radiation patterns can be achieved in both cases, but with the Huygens’ box antenna we are able to significantly reduce the number of sources required, which also dramatically reduce the complexity and component cost for the antenna array. We envision the Huygens’ box antenna will be a great cost-saving alternative to microstrip patch arrays for mm-wave regime.
