A non-reciprocal antenna radome based on the Faraday rotation effect in a ferrite slab is proposed and analyzed. This radome allows transmission in one direction and attenuates the signal in the opposite direction. It includes two layers of strip gratings on each side of the ferrite slab, consisting of highly conductive strips for proper reflection, and thin highly lossy strips for reflection/dissipation, and three dielectric layers for matching. The radome is analyzed rigorously by the generalized scattering matrix (GSM) method and its performance experimentally demonstrated between two broadband antennas. The measured results show 21 dB and 0.85 dB loss in the isolation and transmission directions, respectively.
