Abstract

The periodic half-width microstrip leaky wave antenna (MLWA) with a backward to forward scanning capability is presented in this paper. The proposed antenna consists of a series of half-width MLWA. The radiating periods place on the different sides of the transmission line. The radiating period works in cutoff region of the first higher order mode, the periodic construction radiates the slow wave out along the edge. The experimental results show the main lobe scans electronically and continuously from 149° to 28° in H-plane (y-z plane) toward end fire (+z direction) when the operating frequency increases from 4.2.9 GHz. © 2010 IEEE.
