Abstract: This paper describes basic research carried out to design a microwave source module employing the concept of an active-integrated leaky-mode antenna. The novel active-antenna source module utilizes a microstrip as the radiating element while adopting uniplanar technology for the active circuit design, The microstrip is operated in the first higher order odd mode, which is a leaky mode, and excited by a proximity-coupled center-fed slotline on the same surface of the uniplanar microwave-integrated circuit. The measured performance of an X-band transmission-type injection-locked active-integrated antenna source module demonstrated that such a design approach was suitable for linear array integration for quasi-optical power combining, The harmonic-balance (BOB) analysis of the proposed active-Integrated antenna agrees with the measurements in both free-running frequency and power level. The measured radiation patterns of the active-integrated antenna also agree well with the theoretical predictions.
