Lens antenna

Lens antennas are microwave antennas constructed with single or multiple lenses . Lens antennas are typically designed using geometrical optics, physical optics or full-wave analysis (finite-difference time-domain method). The lens is excited with a small antenna element, typically a patch antenna or an open-ended waveguide.[1] An array of feeding elements is referred to as a focal plane array (FPA).
