Millimeter-wave Quasioptical Beamsteering Antennas Millimeter-wave Quasioptical Beamsteering Antennas

We are investigating fully analog solutions to the problem of multi-beam, wideband, millimeter-wave antennas for both base stations and mobile devices. We combine transformation optics design with artificial media based on perforated and ceramic-embedded dielectrics to create low-profile lens antennas.
