Integrated-circuit probe-excited horn-antenna arrays etched in silicon are well developed. They are a very promising class of antenna arrays for milli-meter and submillimeter applications. Further development of this technology involves integrating mixers and amplifiers into the antenna arrays. In an effort to develop an antenna-mixer array based on the existing technology, various antenna probes inside the pyramidal horns have been examined on scaled model-horns at the microwave frequencies. In this paper, modeling results and design principles of these antenna probes have been presented, which include the resonant impedance, the operating frequency, and the bandwidth of the horn antennas. These measurement results provide a guideline in designing probes for millimeter/submillimeter-wave integrated-circuit horn-antenna-mixer arrays.
