Abstract:

A description is given of the effects of anisotropic dielectric gratings on the sidelobe levels of an antenna in a radome for a variety of experimental conditions. These gratings reduced sidelobes levels significantly below those of the radome without gratings. Graphs of the computed transmittance of flat, dielectric sheets are given for circularly polarized waves as functions of frequency. These graphs are useful in determining bandwidths and supplement an earlier report in which transmittance was given as a functional thickness for fixed frequencies. Author
