P. K. Singhal, Ravi Pratap Singh Kushwah, P. C. Sharma, D. C. Dhubkariairst


Bootlace lens is the most appropriate choice for multiple beam forming. Proposed here is a modified geometry and design approach for bootlace lens. A bootlace lens at UHF frequency band has been designed and fabricated. The results for the designed lens are in agreement with the design value.
