Abstract

Soft-surface horn antennas are known to provide low cross-polarization [1, 2, 3] and a symmetrical radiation pattern with low sidelobes. Early soft-surfaces were realized in corrugated horns [1, 2]. Although they provide good performance, corrugated horns are expensive to manufacture and relatively heavy, so several alternatives have been proposed, including horns loaded with dielectric cones [4]. Trifurcated horns, though not based on soft-surfaces, are another alternative, also providing low sidelobes with low cross-polarization [5].
