Abstract:

The feasibility of the method of obtaining arbitrary polarization in both one and two-dimensional waveguide slot arrays was demonstrated. The arbitrarily polarized radiating element consists of a pair of cross slots which are cut in the sidewall of a bifurcated rectangular waveguide. Vertical and horizontal polarizations are excited by the sum and difference modes, respectively, in the bifurcated waveguide. By super-imposing the sum and difference modes in the proper amplitude and phase, any arbitrary polarization can be synthesized. Author
