Abstract : A backfire antenna is described which incorporates a dielectric slow-wave structure in place of the parasitic directors of earlier models. Using previously investigated optimum dimensions, this antenna uses new techniques of energizing in a cross polarized sense. Measurements of far-field patterns, directivity, and isolation between primary planes are given. (Author)
