This article demonstrates the effect of coupling between two metal strips and the substrate width of a periodic leaky wave patch antenna operating at 80 GHz. Increasing the width of the substrate and the distance between the metal patches results in directional radiation and a good reflection coefficient in the 72-86 GHz band.
