Abstract
In this paper, we compare the performance of micromachined Teflon and 3D printed Plastic lenses for WiGig modules. Both are based on extended hemispherical shapes. Reusing a HDI module with built-in antenna as a source, we demonstrate an antenna gain improvement of respectively 9 dB and 11 dB for the Plastic and the Teflon lenses. Full-wave simulations are verified by measurements.
