    Abstract

    A hologram-based compact antenna test range (CATR) is designed, constructed, and used to test a 1.5-m antenna at 650 GHz. The CATR is based on a 3.16-m-diameter hologram as the collimating element. So far, this is the highest frequency at which any CATR has been used for antenna tests. The quiet zone is measured and optimized before the antenna tests. The measured antenna pattern results at 650 GHz are analyzed and compared to the simulated patterns. Feed scanning antenna pattern comparison technique is used to correct the antenna pattern. These tests show the hologram CATR to be promising for antenna measurements up to 650 GHz.
