© 2020 IEEE. Fast-speed, mast-capacity, and low-cost communications are highly desired for future wireless systems. Single-feed overmoded slot-based rectangular cavity antennas are developed to meet this demand. A TE(10)(11)(0) mode is excited in the cavity with a rectangular waveguide. A total of 110 slots appropriately etched in its top surface yields a system that radiates its beam into the broadside direction with a gain of 26.6 dBi. An engineered phased patch surface is then introduced tofacilitate tilted-beam pattern for high-order-mode cavity antennas. The realized cavity antenna augmented with an appropriately-shaped phased patch surface attained a tilted beam at 30° with respect to the broadside direction. An antenna prototype was fabricated, and measured results agree well with the simulated ones.
