The application of conventional reflector type compact antenna test ranges (CATR), becomes increasingly difficult above 100 GHz. The main problems are the tight surface accuracy requirements for the reflector, and therefore the high manufacturing costs. These problems can be overcome by the use of a new hologram type of compact range, in which a planar hologram structure is used as a collimating element. This new idea is described, and its performance is studied with theoretical analyses and measurements at 110 GHz.
