Based on quasi-conformal coordinate transformation, lens designs for conformal array antenna applications are presented. Potentially over a broad bandwidth for the two-dimensional TE polarization, a physically linear array can be transformed into a virtual curved array, or vice versa, using a lens having only nonmagnetic medium parameters. Lens designs for transforming between linear and cylindrical arrays in conformal conducting ground planes as well as their predicted scanning performances are shown. Such lenses can be designed and applied to existing array antennas to enable new scanning capabilities.
