Abstract

A theory exploring scattering parameters and Friis transmission formula of cascaded two-ports was presented to analyze the operation of a spatial power combiner formed by either a reflectarray or transmitarray of microstrip patch antennas. This theory was used for the investigation of insertion losses when the elements of the reflect array or the transmit array were phased to focus the re-transmitted wave onto a receiving sub-array. The theory was validated by comparison with experiment and a full-wave analysis.
