Abstract

This Letter presents an original technique to design and synthesize an inhomogeneous asymmetrical lens resulting in a special fan-beam radiation pattern in a wide frequency bandwidth. The vertical and horizontal planes of the fan-beam radiation pattern can be determined separately. Wide angle search and detection are achievable by using this type of lens antenna because of its suitable radiation pattern. The proposed relative index profile is validated by the means of commercial CST software and an FDTD scheme.
