Abstract

This work presents a dielectric rod antenna array designed for a photonic-enabled beamforming system at subterahertz frequencies. The photonic chip generates an optical group delay, providing the beam-steering capability. The antenna array is fabricated from high-resistivity silicon by micromachining. Simulation results demonstrate a directivity of 14.7 dBi and a beam steering range of 56 degrees at 85 GHz. The system is intended as a sub-THz transmitter for broadband wireless communications.
