The quest to optimize performance of the radial line slots array (RLSA) antenna continued to unfold. Attempt is made at studying slots width variation in radial line slot array antenna (RLSA) and its effect on the 3dB half power beam width (3dB HPBW) in this submission. It is aimed at formulating a polynomial equation that best describes the relationship between them. The polynomial equation in turn relates to the directivity of the RLSA antenna. The minimum number of slots in the first ring were restricted to (n1) =12 and, (n1) =14, this is used to manipulate slots concentration on the radiating surface. The restriction is owed to the fact that much cluster of slots in the first ring resulted to a deteriorating performance in terms of directivity values recorded from CST 2012 simulations, for the 12.4 GHz regression analysis in this study. Results obtained from the polynomial equation formed were compared with measured and simulated directivity values and showed good agreement.

    At millimetre-wave frequencies, the discrepancy between simulation and measurement comes from the relative permittivity tolerance and fabrication tolerance. This discrepancy can mainly cause resonant frequency shift. A tunable waveguide-to-microstrip transition for the W-band antenna is proposed...
