Abstract
In this paper, the design of a dielectric flat lens to operate in the Ku-band for satellite communications is presented. Modern dishes intended for home television are generally bulky and heavy. Moreover, the costs of installation and alignment with the desired satellite are high. Satellite television providers are therefore looking for alternatives to the traditional dishes that could provide narrow beamwidths (5° max.), high gains, low side-lobe levels and beam steering capabilities. To satis...
