Abstract
An antenna integrated with a dielectric lens for Wi-Gig applications at 60GHz is proposed and measured in this paper. A low-cost lens, manufactured with 3-D printing technology, is used to shape the 3-D radiation pattern of the antenna accordingly to the requirements for typical indoor high-frequency communications. The antenna-lens combination has a measured return loss above 11.5dB between 57-66GHz. The antenna has a maximum gain of 11dBi. If we consider higher gains than 5dBi, we have respectively a 24° and 96° beamwidth in the elevation and azimuth planes.
