Abstract:

In this research project, Physical Optics Corporation POC has developed theoretical and laboratory models of semiconductor waveguides for MMW antennas. The physical model has been tested experimentally demonstrating attenuation of MMW propagation in the semiconductor waveguide. POC has also investigated coupling between semiconductor and metal waveguides. A new type of evanescent-coupling scanning antenna has been demonstrated and tested. The results of this project form the foundation for the fabrication of a light controlled antenna. MMW Antenna, Semiconductor waveguide
