Keywords: simulation, optimization, millimeter wave antenna

Simulations are carried out using XFDTD software to determine the set of input values for several parameters of the fin line antenna, to give an optimized radiation performance in the principal planes. A further modification is proposed and implemented in the optimized design by extending the waveguide in a horn antenna fashion to create a larger aperture. The modified design is aimed to improve the overall reflection coefficient of the antenna.
