Printed Circuit Board Antennas, including: Spiral antennas, Patch antennas, Sinuous antennas, Dipole antennas
As well as the standard horns that we offer, Q-par Angus offers many unusual and unique designs including dielectric filled horns, sectoral horns & conical horns. We also offer these horns to your particular design requirements, i.e. frequency range, gain, beamwidth, material, weight can all be tailored to suit.
Over the years, the company has tackled many unusual and highly specialist antenna designs and systems. These are but a few highlights.
Occasionally we are asked about antenna concepts and the difference between antenna types. Here we discuss the definitions of many antenna terms specific to microwave antennas, and the differences and physics behind horn and reflector antennas. Lastly, far-field range and field strength are discussed in terms of EMC applications for horn antennas.
A range of nine Horn Antennas specifically optimised for operation at one metre, covering the band 0.4 - 18 GHz is now available. A special bespoke mounting system has been developed to enable fast setup and setdown operation.
Amazingly, the first experiments on microwave horns were made more than a 100 years ago, in 1897. The gentleman we have to thank is Professor J. Chandra Bose of Calcutta. His demonstration of a millimetre wave spectrometer is incredible considering the technology and understanding of the day. Here we pay homage to the man who could be considered to be the father of microwave horn technology.
