Citation: ZHANG, S., 2016. 3D printed dielectric Fresnel lens. Presented at the 2016 10th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, (EuCAP 2016), Davos, Switzerland, 10-15th April.
Abstract: © 2016 European Association of Antennas and Propagation.This paper presents the design and fabrication of a zone plate Fresnel lens. 3D Printing is used for rapid prototyping this low-cost and light-weight lens to operate at 10 GHz. This lens is comprised of four different 3D printed dielectric zones to form phase compensation in a Fresnel lens. The dielectric zones are fabricated with different infill percentage to create tailored dielectric constants. The dielectric lens offers 18 dBi directivity at 10 GHz when illuminated by a waveguide source.
