The Design for WR-06 Corrugated Conical Horn Antenna and its Application in Emissivity Measurement of Microwave Radiator
This paper presents the design for a corrugated conical-horn antenna working in WR06 frequency band and its application in emissivity measurement of microwave radiator. For a calibration target of microwave radiometer, we consider design the corrugated conical-horn antenna to satisfy its measurement requirements of the emissivity of calibration target. The antenna is designed with small flare angle and low VSWR in a frequency range of 150±10GHz. The measurement results for electrical properties of antenna and emissivity of microwave radiator are presented in this paper. The results show that the performance of antenna is fit to the emissivity measurement of radiator of radiometer calibration target.
