Some focusing properties of Fresnel zone plate (FZP) lens antennas in the near-field region are presented at the ka-band. Simulated and measured results of the FZP antenna show displacement of the maximum intensity of the electric field along the axial direction from the focal point toward the antenna aperture. This displacement increases as the antenna's focal length increases. In addition, the focused beam scanning of the FZP lens antennas in the radiation near-field is examined.
