Dielectric rod waveguide antennas of rectangular cross section have a number of advantages over conventional waveguide and horn antennas as an antenna array element. Dielectric rod waveguide antennas have relatively low cost, low losses, a broadband input match and a high packing potential. Additionally the radiation pattern of such antennas is almost frequency independent. In this paper the suitability of Sapphire rod waveguides for an antenna array is studied with simulations and prototype measurements at W band. Strong mutual coupling is observed when the elements are close to each other.
