Although leaky wave antennas have been studied extensively in the literature, their practical use is still limited. This work proposes a novel and unique application of leaky NRD guides as feeding systems for microwave planar antennas and shows their substantial possibilities of practical use. At first a new leaky waveguide is introduced based on a periodic array of grooves on the upper side of the dielectric strip in the NRD guide. Then, leaky waves issuing from this configuration are used to feed a slot array cut on the upper metal plate of the NRD guide. Design examples of linearly and circularly polarized planar antennas were constructed, and their characteristics were measured at 23 GHz. The obtained results show the validity for this application of the leaky waveguide
