AbstractThis paper proposes an improvement of the link model of 60 GHz directional surface wave antenna arrays. Since the transmit and receive arrays share the grounded substrate, the total coupling power is contained in both space and surface waves. The dominant TM0 mode of the grounded substrate contributes to the surface wave coupling. In addition, it is shown that the finite extent of the substrate creates a TM0 standing wave. This wave is responsible for oscillations in the power coupling between the arrays as a function of their separation.
