A General Method for Designing a Radome to Enhance the Scanning Angle of a Phased Array Antenna

The authors propose a general method to design an arbitrarily shaped radome which can extend the scanning angle of a phased array antenna through Finite Embedded Transformation (FET). The main advantage of their method is that the relationship between the incident angle and steered output angle of the radome can be designed in advance (e.g., a linear relation can be achieved). Unlike a traditional FET, which is often applied onto a slab region, they first apply FET onto an arbitrarily shaped region to bestow the desired radome with an arbitrary shape.
