Abstract
The principle of a novel passive millimeter-wave (MMW) imaging method using frequency scanning antenna (FSA) and arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) is analyzed theoretically. The imaging processes are divided to three stages and discussed respectively. Then the FSA with 33~ 43GHz frequency scanning range is designed carefully with a field of view of ±25°for the MMW imaging system. An AWG of 1×24 is then simply designed with a channel spacing of 0.5GHz. The designing and simulating demonstrated the feasibility to build such an imaging system which is progressing.
