Abstract
In this study two types of coplanar waveguide (CPW) array antennas are designed and analyzed for use in a 60GHz Radio over Fiber indoor network. The first one is based on high permittivity Rogers 6010 and Indium Phosphide (InP) substrates incorporating slots as radiating elements. The second one utilizes stacked geometry based on the above substrates. Both arrays present more 1 GHz bandwidth and 10dBi gain. Furthermore they can provide beam-forming operation by properly adjusting the signal’s amplitude and phase. A Least Mean Square (LMS) algorithm is generated for this purpose and the radiation pattern is steered accordingly. At last, a photodiode is simulated using equivalent circuit and is adopted with the proposed arrays, and an optical beam forming scenario is discussed.
